About 0 results are shown

The Rosh Pina Airport was constructed in 1943 under the British mandatory rule. In 1968 the airport name was changed to the “Isaac Ben Jacob Rosh Pina Airport”, who was one of the pioneers of Hebrew aviation during the British mandate.
The airport functions as a domestic airport. Its location in the heart of the Galilee provides convenient access for residents in the surrounding Galilee regions.
The airport is used for commercial, private and light aircraft flying.
The runways were uniquely paved by laying stones tightly packed together and padded by layers of bitumen, on which a further layer of smaller stones was laid and then coved by a final layer of asphalt.

May 1948 – with the establishment of the State of Israel the airport operated in service to the Israeli air force.
At the airport there remain historical battle stations and shelters from the time of the British Mandate.
The air control tower and passenger terminal weren’t built yet.
During the fifties Arkia began operating commercially at the airport from a humble shed that also served as a terminal for passengers and as the air control tower.
1968 – air traffic is moved to the beginning of runway 33 and at the same time a passengers terminal is constructed.
1971 - An air control tower and fire and rescue station are constructed. The fire and rescue station is equipped with new vehicles and for the first time fire and rescue services are operated at the airport. The temporary fire and rescue services provided by the United Municipality of Hazor Haglilit are suspended, and with the establishment of the Israel Airports Authority in 1977, the airport becomes responsibility of the IAA.
