Ben Gurion International Airport

Ben Gurion International Airport

Ben Gurion International Airport is currently the only international airport in Israel. Ben Gurion International Airport was first built by the British and was known as Lod Airport. Work by the British commenced in 1935 and its four runways were already complete by 1937. The Dutch Airline, KLM, was the first to land at Lod Airport in 1937. The stopover served as an opportune linking point between Europe and the Far East. After Israel’s first prime minister, David Ben Gurion, died in 1973, the Knesset renamed the airport in his honor.
