Tel Aviv Ben Gurion Airport Guide to Tel Aviv International Airport or Ben Gurion Airport (TLV)

Tel Aviv Ben Gurion Airport Terminal 3

Tel Aviv Terminal 3 stands for the international terminal.

Terminal 3 has a satellite terminal “Rotunda”, which is home of Concourse B, C, D (and in the nearly future Concourses A and E), where it hosts 30 gates- Each concourse has 8 jetway-equipped gates (numbered 2 through 9) and 2 stand gates (bus bays, 1 and 1A) from which passengers are ferried to the aircraft. EI AI flights use practically all the concourse D and other airlines use concourses B and C.

Ben Gurion Airport Terminal 3 uses the Jetway system. The overall layout is similar to that of airports in North America and Europe, with multiple levels and considerable distances to walk after disembarking from the aircraft. The walk is assisted by escalators and moving walkways.

The upper level departures hall, with an area of over 10,000 m2 (110,000 sq ft), is equipped with 110 check-in counters and as well as Flight information display systems.

A small shopping mall, known as Buy & Bye, is open to both travellers and the general public. The mall, which includes restaurants, shops and a post office was planned to be a draw for non-flyers too.
