Eilat Airport Panorama, Israel

Eilat Airport (Hebrew: שְׂדֵה הַתְּעוּפָה אֵילַת‬, Namal HaTe'ufa Eilat;, also known as J. Hozman Airport (IATA: ETH, ICAO: LLET), is an Israeli airport located in the city of Eilat, and named for Arkia Airlines founder Yakov Hozman (Jacob Housman). Eilat Airport is located in the central area of the city, next to Route 90 (The Arava Road). It mostly handles domestic flights to Tel Aviv and Haifa Airport with international flights operating instead to Uvda International Airport, but a few international flights on aircraft that can handle the relatively short runway use Eilat as well.

The airport was expected to cease operations on October 27, 2018 when Eilat's new international airport, Ramon Airport, becomes operational. However, the new airport was delayed and finally opened on January 21, 2019. Following the inauguration of Ramon Airport, it was announced that Eilat Airport will cease operations on March 18, 2019.
