All-time traveler records broken at Ben-Gurion Airport

On the day with the peak number of passengers ever to fly through Ben-Gurion Airport, the Israel Airports Authority announced that 2015 has broken all-time records for summer travel.

More than 79,800 travelers passed through the airport on Thursday, on a total of 457 flights, the IAA said. All in all this August, more than 2 million passengers have flown in and out of the airport thus far, with summer travel beating all forecasts and national records, according to the IAA. The surge in August air traffic follows a July that featured a 20-percent jump in passenger numbers and a 10% rise in flights in comparison to the same month the previous year, the authority added.
