Summer traffic at BG Airport nears 3M

Airports Authority expects Israel's international airport to experience peak passenger traffic in August

The Israel Airports Authority expects Ben Gurion International Airport to experience its peak summer passenger traffic in August, which is likely to see over 600,000 people fly in and out of Israel on 400 flights.


The IAA projected that 50,000-60,000 people will use the airport per day throughout August – the height of the summer vacation.


In total, 2.9 million passengers are expected to pass through Israel's international gateway through the summer.


The figure represents a 2.3% increase from the summer of 2011.


The IAA said that in July some 1.4 million passengers passed through Ben Gurion Airport – up 4.5% from last year.
