Flights to Tel Aviv

British Airways operates direct flights to Tel Aviv from London Heathrow, so you can be in the White City by the sea in less than 5 hours. There are frequent, daily flights to Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion International Airport, which is about a 30-minute drive from the city’s centre.

Tel Aviv’s location on the eastern edge of the Med makes it a perfect year-round destination for anyone seeking a beach holiday with world-renowned architecture, a bewildering range of restaurants, and one of the world’s top places to party. If it all gets too much (or too hot), Jerusalem is just one hour away by car.

Getting around Tel Aviv.

Getting around Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv International Airport is known as Ben Gurion. It’s Tel Aviv – and Israel’s – only hub. Depending on traffic, downtown is some 30 minutes away; head in the other direction and you’ll get to Jerusalem in about 45. The easiest way to go is by taxi. There is also a fast train, shuttle buses and car hire. Since you need to get a bus to the car hire area, you may want to consider picking up your rental in town.
