Beginning in 2019, digital upgrades will be made at Ben-Gurion Airport. On Sunday, the Israel Airport Authority announced that they would be spending NIS 2 million to install new self-service stations at the main Israeli hub airport.

Travelers can use the upgraded kiosks to check their bags in, print out luggage tags, and weigh their bags before boarding. Passengers can unload their bags without assistance by scanning their tags next to the conveyer belt.

Numerous U.S. airports already feature such kiosks. Roughly half of Israeli passengers do not currently use the online check-in option.

The primary goal is to enhance passenger service both immediately and over the course of time. Hagi Topolansky, Head of the IAA

Israel’s Ben-Gurion International Airport is increasing its check-in capacity.

The airport is planning to increase the size of the screening area for passengers who do not check luggage in the coming days. Carry-on passengers will be able to breeze through security as a result.

The primary goal, according to IAA CEO Hagi Topolansky, is to enhance passenger service in both the long and short terms.

Since the beginning of the year, Ben-Gurion International Airport has seen approximately 10 million passengers, and this number is expected to rise to 2.3 million in August alone.
