Welcome to israel international airport named after David Ben Gurion terminal 3 – known as Ben Gurion Airport or by its IATA code; TLV.
The airport started as an airfield which was built by the British in 1936 and was called Wilhelma airfield, names after the Templer germans colony which existed next to the airfield. Before world war II, the airfield was used by a few air companies such as Egypt air company, KLM Dutch air company, Lot Polish air company, Czech airlines and the imperial airlines. During World War II the airfield was used by the military allies' air forces and was the air base of the British royal air force. In July 1948 during the Israeli independence war the airfield was concurred during an Israeli military operation called operation Dani which was the main operation of concurring the cities Lod and Ramle. The operation was executed by the 8 divisions commended by Yitzhak Sade. Next to the airfield, in El Al junction, there is a memorial monument for the soldiers who fell in this operation. In the 24 th of November, 1948, the airport opened officially as an international airport – the only one in Israel, who was just established. The official name of the airport was Lod Airport and it existed until 1973 when it was renamed after the 1 st prime minister of Israel, David Ben Gurion. During the next years the airport went through a lot of changes and expansions. The main building of the airport was originally built on the east-south side of the main runways and was capable of handling up to forty thousand passengers in his 1 st year. The government reached a conclusion that the airport was too small to handle the amount of passengers arriving into the new country and decided to build another terminal in addition to Terminal 1. The added terminal was planned to be called T3 . To find the specific store, you can use the following hint: The singing note can be found between Do and Ti Have a pleasant flight
