As reported in the Jerusalem Post, Ben-Gurion Airport opened the fourth passenger wing in its main terminal on Thursday.

The new extension in Terminal 3, Wing E, will accommodate up to 1,800 more passengers per hour, allowing for dozens of additional incoming and outgoing flights daily.

The new concourse includes telescopic glass pathways, eight plane exit gates, four bus exit gates, along with shops, restaurants and a VIP lounge. Some of the gates include double bridges, allowing for passengers to board and disembark from both the front and back of wide-bodied aircraft.
