The worst security guys I have ever encountered was in my life, I live in Israel and have been questioned a million times leaving at Ben gurion and I have never walk away from the security thinking to myself what a dickhead till I leafy Ramon airport…. The security guy told my husband,his mother and father they are not immediate family and I was not immediate family too….
Seriously security in Israel is unpleasant but this was at another level

Very new regional airport. You can take the 30 bus to get close to the Israel/Jordan border and downtown Eilat. Security was fast and easy for a flight to TLV.

I’m a regular visitor to Eilat, having used the old airport in the middle of town. Easy access but loads of noise. The new airport, a few miles north of Eilat is a good investment. Nice roomy. However designed by a man who gets there by car. Instead of putting some decent large toilet areas, the ladies from our flight had to queue for the 4 cubicles. I read this airport is going to be the great new gateway to Eilat and the wider area. Lufthansa, Ryanair and everybody else. If that’s the case, these bigger planes will cause even bigger problems. And then outside. Bus stops outside lack timetables etc. But also, for a bus stop in the middle of the dessert, a cabin with a roof to giv protection. I remember the bus stops in Dubai which have airco. That is very good. Here is nothing. The bus to the hotels in Eilat is only NIS 4.80, apx $1-$2. A very good deal and leaves every 20 minutes. Taxi is apx NIS100, closer to $30.
The airport has all the potential, however some basics need attention.
