TVL is a strategic point for Israel since it is a convenient entry point into the country. Over the years, this point has made it a target for terrorists and hijackers. TVL has developed the strictest security precautions of all airports, including security forces undercover and uniformed.
The airport began in 1934 during the British Mandate period. During WWII, it served the RAF until the end of the war. 1948, the British gave up the airport. Today, there are numerous renovation programs in the works, including one to add a new 120-bed hotel by the airport.
