Israel set to open Ramon Airport
January 02, 2019 / Airport Technology
Ramon Airport was built with an investment of $500m and will initially start operations on 22 January with domestic flights, before extending to international operations in March. The facility is the country’s newest international airport.Initially, the Arkia and Israir carriers will operate the domestic flights.IAA spokeswoman Liza Dvir told Reuters that the opening of the airstrip took slightly longer than planned due to the need to extend parking spaces for 60 aircraft. Minor delays were also caused by the need to increase the runway length to 3.6km so that larger aircraft can land at the site.
