Upon arrival at the departure halls at Terminal 3, you are requested to go to the security area serving the airline you will be flying on. For security reasons entrance to the security inspection area is limited solely to passengers. People accompanying passengers will not be permitted to enter these areas.
If you are not aware of which area you should go to, you can find the necessary information either on one of two larger electronic screens located at the ends of the hall on the 3rd floor, or from watching the small screens spread out throughout the terminal, or from a representative at the information counter located in the center of the hall. For your convenience, these screens are continuously updated around the clock in accordance with the flight schedule.
Likewise, at the entrance to each inspection area you will find a passenger service representative, who can direct you to the proper inspection area and the appropriate queue.
Upon entering the queue for security inspection you will be requested to present the security personnel your passport and flight tickets (or a document that proves a ticket has been ordered) and to answer a number of questions relevant to the security of the flight.
We are pleased to inform you that as from March 2014, the Israel Airports Authority will implement a modern advanced security system for baggage inspection for flights departing Ben Gurion Airport – Hold Baggage Screening (HBS).
The HBS was developed by the Israel Airports Authority for totally automatic passenger baggage security inspection, and to improve the level of service. The system complies with the strictest of requirements and is based on the highest level of technology.
The security inspection process includes the documentation stage and a few questions, after which passengers will proceed directly to the counter of their respective airlines in order to check in for their flight and hand over their baggage.
After tagging baggage at the airline counter, the baggage will be sent for the automatic inspection by the system. The inspection carried out by the HBS is automatic. In certain cases the need may arise to open the baggage for manual inspection. Therefore, you are requested not to lock the baggage. For your information, this inspection is carried out under total electronic surveillance and documented, so that should your baggage be opened for security reasons, a notice will be placed in your baggage with full details of the process.
Upon receipt of the boarding passes you may proceed to the "Shchakim” shopping area and from there through the hand baggage (carry-on) inspection and the metal detector.
After completing the security inspections, and until your flight departs, we invite you to enjoy the other services offered at Ben Gurion Airport.
We thank you for you cooperation and wish you a pleasant flight.
The Security Division
