Tel Aviv’s Ben-Gurion International Airport won fourth place in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2015 Readers’ Choice Awards for best international airports.
The influential travel mag had this to say about the airport designed by Israeli native architect Moshe Safdie:
“Named after Israel’s first prime minister, this airport’s highest score was for easy access from downtown Tel Aviv, nine miles to the north west. Known primarily for being one of the world’s most secure airports, 15 million passengers passed through here in 2014 and it has consistently won awards for best airport in the Middle East. The country’s national carrier, El Al, is the top dog here.”
Changi Airport in Singapore was No. 1 on the list.
