Israel to build new airport in southern part of country
The Israeli government confirmed it will build a new international airport in Timna to replace existing airports in Ovda (VDA) and Eilat (ETH). Presently, ETH handles mostly domestic flights owing to runway length limitations while most international flights operate from/to VDA, which is located about 40 miles (60 km) north of Eilat.
