Israeli airline El Al is now making it even easier to leave from Tel Aviv and Eilat with the introduction of town check-in services.
No longer does a traveller need to be at the airport hours in advance to check-in their luggage, they can now check-in at Tel Aviv and Eilat and then get to the airport just one hour and 15 minutes before departure.
The new special service allows travellers to drop off their baggage either a day before they fly or the morning and they will also be allocated their seat.
In Tel Aviv, all flyers can check-in at the EL AL Town Terminal in Arlozoroff Street Train Station. While those staying at the Tel Aviv Hilton can also do so directly in the hotel.
In Eilat, the special check-in service is done on the morning of the flight and only applies to guests staying at either the Royal Beach, Dan and King Solomon hotels.
The cost for the service is an additional 30 shekels ($6.50/£3.80 per person checking in) but it does mean less hassle to get to the airport.
