Timna Ramon International Airport is an international airport in Timna Valley in southern Israel. It replaces the old Eilat airport located in the centre of the city, serving as a support to Israel’s main airport, Ben Gurion. The airport is located 18km north of Eilat. It has a 3.600m long track, longer than the old one in the previous airport. The move from the centre is part of a larger plan to develop the city of Eilat, and is necessary for the additional construction of new hotels along the coast and hence for its total tourist development.
