Hahagana Station

"Against the backdrop of efforts to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, it was decided that by Wednesday the train station at Ben Gurion Airport will be closed to anyone arriving in Israel. Domestic flight passengers will be able to use the train services upon presentation of a plane ticket. Passengers on domestic flights landing at Terminal 1 will be able to use the train as usual.


This decision was made following the directive issued last night, which states that anyone returning to Israel outside its borders will enter home isolation for two weeks." Hebrew article here...
