Landing area in Terminal 1 is located near Fattal terminal lounge for VIP passangers, the new private lounge in the airpot.



There are passengers from Eilat that need medical assistance that don't have in Eilat, so they fly almost every week to TLV to get the medical assistance.
Because of closed old Sde Dov (SDV) airport in beach/center Tel Aviv, israeli airports authority make free shuttle buses to the hospitals in Tel Aviv, that passangers will fly on this flights.
The closing SDV airport result made less passangers flying to Eilat from Ben gurion airport and the airport starts to make decisions to make those flights grow again.
The way out from the landing area to the free shuttle buses to Terminal 3 or to the Sheba/ Tel Hashomer hospitals in Tel Aviv.

Conclusion

In conclusion there is just 2 airlines that fly to Eilat from TLV (Arkia, Israir), there would be maybe in the future another airlines that would fly to ETM (Airlines that want: EL AL, WizzAir, Ryanair).
If you don't want to take a flight to Eilat, you can ride by bus from Tel Aviv (5 hours ride).
Hope you've enjoyed the FR!

    Unfortunately, since Eilat airport closed, I can't find any sense in flight from Tel Aviv to Ramon airport, when You consider the time You'll waste in the check in, the time You need to arrive to the airport, the time You need to arrive to your hotel in Eilat, It seems that driving by car will be much more logical choice (unless You're unable to drive long distances or You don't have driving license).
    I can find this airport logical only for tourists and people who live in Haifa.
