Tel Aviv is within a short distance from Turkey and easily reached with affordable flight tickets offered by Pegasus Airlines. There are direct flights from Istanbul and occasionally from Antalya. It only takes 1 hour 35 minutes from Antalya and 2 hours and 10 minutes from Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen Airport to Ben Gurion International Airport, which is the busiest airport in the country.  


Transportation from Tel Aviv Airport to the City Center 

Ben Gurion International Airport is located about 45 km northwest of Jerusalem and 20 km to the southeast of Tel Aviv, in the middle of two main cities.  There are various options to reach Tel Aviv city-center. Taking a taxi is probably the fastest and most comfortable way, as it takes only 20 minutes. The taxi lines can be found immediately outside the arrivals hall on level G of Terminal 3. The prices for taxi rides are usually fixed with the opportunity of pre-booking online.  

Buses are among the most common means of transport in Israel and public transportation can be another option to get to the city center, though it appears to be a bit more complicated with less frequent schedules. 

Travelers should first take the shuttle bus Number 5 to the Airport City station, found at the exit 21 and 23 of Terminal 3 and then change to a city bus according to the desired destination in Tel Aviv.  Tickets can be purchased from the driver on the bus. Taking the train straight from Terminal 3 on level S is an alternative method that gets to the center in about 20 minutes, but particular attention should be paid to the timetables, since they don’t run on holidays or late at midnight.  

Travelers may also opt for benefiting from Pegasus Airlines’ car rental services. Passengers can easily utilize the online platform to organize their journey by typing in city or airport name to manage their bookings beforehand. Making your trip flexible and reliable, a great range of transfer options will be offered suited to your needs and preferences.
