Work has begun on the construction of a new VIP terminal complex at Ben Gurion Airport. The Fattal chain, which won the tender for the construction of the terminal four years ago, began construction work for the construction of the complex, at an investment of NIS 18 million.

The new complex is intended for heads of delegations, presidents, ambassadors and private aircraft owners. It will cover 1,300 square meters and will include a central duty-free store, a waiting room, private suites, guest rooms, conference rooms, a cigar room, concierge services and private staff.

The new complex is expected to open at the end of 2018 in Terminal 1.
