The following logistical information will be useful for your trip to Israel, including travel arrangements, accommodations and additional essential details and requirements.


Transfers from and to the airport
  • From the airport: upon your arrival at Ben-Gurion International Airport, you will be met by a ground transfer representative who will be holding a sign with your name. The representative will help you through passport control and locate the shuttle arranged for your transfer from the airport to your hotel where you will check in at the reception desk.
