Ben Gurion Airport
Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion Airport was named as one of the leading airports in the Middle East in the Airports Council International (ACI) airport survey, published recently.  Israel’s main international airport was ranked third, after Dubai and Abu Dhabi airports.
 
The report, based on surveys checking more than 30 parameters and surveying millions of travelers, said new technologies being introduced at Ben Gurion would situate it at “the forefront of the international security technology.”
 
“Ben Gurion Airport leads a strategy of continuous focus on the improvement of passenger service level next to advanced technology and professional capabilities, while complying with high international service standards for passengers departing from and arriving in Israel,” the report added.
 
In 2011, more than 12.2 million passengers passed through Ben Gurion airport.
 
Ben Gurion's Terminal 3, designed by Israel-Canadian architect Moshe Safdie and featuring a duty-free rotunda open 24 hours a day, opened in October 2004 and is Israel's main international gateway.
