Hello and welcome to this flight report, about my flight with EasyJet from Tel Aviv to Venice!
Since EasyJet is LCC, I arrived to terminal 1 in Tel Aviv airport, where most low cost flights are from this terminal. I'll write about the advantages and disadvantages of this terminal (compared to terminal 3) later in this flight report.
Pre flight experience - TLV airport, terminal 1
The main building of the terminal:
As I wrote in my flight report about LY2523 flight, terminal 1 still serves only the outbound international flights, inbound low cost flights will park close to terminal 1, and the passengers from the inbound flight will arrive to terminal 3 by buses.
The flights screen near to the entrance:
The check in area:
The check in process was fast, much faster than my previous flight in terminal 1, but I had faster check ins in terminal 3, however, It wasn't bad at all.
During the way to the security check and immigration:
As usual, the immigration process was fast since I have biometric passport. The security check was very fast.
Now I'm actually in the terminal, so here's some photos after the security check:
I just saw what I could buy to eat, but I went to Aroma, which has good coffee and nice food. In terms of dining, terminal 3 offers better options, not only more options for dining, but also the same restaurant will offer You different products. Let's take Burger ranch as our example. The branch in terminal 3 offers hamburgers, chicken, children meals and more, while the branch in terminal 1 offers only sausages and schnitzel sandwich. Also, the dining area in terminal 3 is much bigger and most the times I could find place to sit, however It's more difficult in terminal 1.
I went to the toilets:
And as You can see, they were clean, whoever, as always, there are some small details which can be better (Like the residues of sticker on the walls)
The duty free area: Touch It which operated by Office Depot, offers electric products, gadgets, etc.
James Richardson duty free shop, which offers chocolates, perfumes, etc.
You can see the same shops in terminal 3, however, the branches in terminal 3 are much bigger (but still, I could find in terminal 1 all the things I wanted to buy).
I bought coffee and Israeli breakfast in Aroma:
It wasn't cheap, but It was tasty and I was hungry, so I went for breakfast and not for croissant.
Our gate, still empty since the boarding didn't started yet:
I went again to the toilets:
And as You can see, It was clean.
Shortly later, the boarding started and I went to my gate.
While the bus took as to the aircraft, I took some photos in the airport! Airport vehicle:
Elal 747-400, very soon, Elal will retire all the fleet of the 747:

I also flown on this aircraft in 2016, You can read my flight report. Our aircraft, again:
4X-ICA, Boeing 747-400F operated by CAL:
Flight experience, TLV to VCE
Aircraft information: Airbus A320-214(WL) OE-ICR (past registration: G-EZOY) Almost 4 years old when I traveled
Outside view of our aircraft in TLV airport:
My seat, 16F:
I was impressed about the cabin and the legroom, my expectations were very low since EasyJet is LCC. The tray table is small but It was steady.
The modrem PSU:
Another advantage, my seat had 2 windows!
Sundor Boeing 737-800, 4X-EKR:
Elal maintenance garage, Boeing 767-300ER inside, 4X-EAR, which withdrawn from service:
Some photos during taxing to Runway 26: EasyJet A320, G-EZUZ:
Arkia EMB-195, 4X-EMF:
I really like Arkia new color shcemes! I hope to try their new aircraft like the A321NEO and the EMB195, since I only flew on the ATR72 and Boeing 757-300. If You find It interesting: IZ547, IZ572.

40 minutes after take off I went to the rear toilets, but first I took photo of the cabin:
Then, I wernt the the toilets:
And as You can see, It was clean. I found the small orange touches in the toilets very nice.
Just when I returned to my seat, the service started. I bought a can of Coke zero:
The rest of the flight was standart, nothing special to report about, the flight was nice and smooth. During the middle of the flight, We climbed from FL360 to FL380.
Now, It's the time to descent to our airport - Venice.
Some photos during the descent:
Landing video (4k available):
I found the landing to be OK, I had better landings in my life, but without any doubt, It wasn't bad.
During taxing to the parking:

After flight experience - VCE airport
Outside view of our aircraft in VCE airport:
Finally I took a photo of Boeing 717 (even though, not a good one…):
The entrance to the terminal:
The immigration process in Venice was very fast, since I had biometric passport. There are machines which compares your face to the photo in your passport, then agents will stamp your passport.
The way to the baggage claim:
Our baggage claim area:
I went to the toilets in Venice airport:
And as You can see, It was very clean!
During our way to the rental cars area, I took some photos of the terminal, which I found beautiful and very special:
There's a long way from the baggage claim area to the rental cars area, but It's not special to me.
The rental cars parking:
Our car for this trip, Fiat Tipo STW 1.6 JTD:
Nice car and economical!
Our flight in FlightRadar24:
Soon I'll post my flight report about my return flight from Italy, FR2005 (BGY - TLV).
I hope You enjoyed, Thanks for reading!
Tel Aviv - TLV
Venice - VCE
The flight with EasyJet was cheap and very nice! I had very low expectations, but I found the cabin very clean, the legroom was good also, the only bad thing I can say about EasyJet cabin - the seats aren't reclining, but I know that It's common in LCC. For such short flight, It's OK, whoever, for longer flight, such as Tel Aviv to London, It may be uncomfortable. The service from the flight attendants was very nice, I can't say nothing bad about them. The buy on board prices are OK in my opinion. Will I fly with EasyJet again? If They'll offer good prices, of course.
Terminal 1 was nice, not like terminal 3, but for the flight price I can't complain. It something You should consider when You book yourself low cost flights from Tel Aviv. I reduced some points about the services in TLV airport, since terminal 1 offers less options in dining and shops, compared to terminal 3. However, the walking distances in terminal 1 are much less than terminal 3, so for people who have some problems with longer distances, It's better.
Venice terminal was very nice! It was very clean, very special and I hope to visit there again soon! I reduced the access parameter score, due to the long distance from the baggage claim to the rental cars area. In services I gave them the maximal score, since You can find many options to eat and some shops to buy.
I highly recommend to visit in Venice, the city is very nice for 2-3 days visit. You can rent a car and continue to visit in Italy, this is what I did, and It was fun.
