The Israel Ministry of Tourism has announced plans to build a new international airport in Timma, just 11 miles north of the southern seaside resort town of Eilat in summer 2014. The new international airport will be named after late Israeli astronaut Ilan Ramon and will look to accommodate 1.35 million travelers passing through Tel Aviv.

The new hotel will feature light rail to transport travelers to downtown Eilat, as well as long-and-short term overnight parking.

The Israel Ministry of Tourism expects the $422 million airport to spark a 300 percent increase in tourism to southern Israel with an anticipated 1.5 million travelers arriving on domestic and international flights each year. The new airport will replace existing airports Ovda and Eilat.
