Ramon Airport Car Rental - Now Available

Eilat is now better connected than ever before with the opening of Ramon International Airport in January 2019. The old Eilat Airport (ETH) has been taken offline and all services and routes diverted to the new facility, Ramon International Airport (ETM), or to give it it’s full name Eilat Ilan and Assaf Ramon International Airport.

Can I rent a 4x4 at Ramon Airport?

Yes, the Hyundai Tuscon is available to rent at Ramon Airport.

Are 7 & 9 seater rental available at Ramon Airport?

Yes, both 7 and 9 seater rentals are available at Ramon Airport, such as the Opel Zafira and Volkswagen Transporter.

How much is car rental at Ramon Airport?

You can rent a car at Ramon Airport from around 22 EUR ($26) per day. Prices are competitive at Ramon Airport relative to the rest of Israel, however as only one rental agent, Europcar, are currently operating from the airport, competition is limited. We expect competiing rental agents to establish a base at Ramon Airport in the near future to bring a wider range and lower prices.

Why did Eilat need a new airport?

The old airport is very close to the city and some taller buildings are potentially at threat to aircraft movements, so the new airport location, some 20km north of the city remove this threat, but also allows freedom to expand in future. The new road network serving the airport will also make onward travel far easier to both Eilat and Be’er Ora without having the circumnavigate a busy city. Whilst tourist numbers to Eilat airport have fallen over the last decade with more and international arrivals being diverted to Ben Gurion Airport, the hope is that the new airport will again attract international arrivals.

Ramon Airport Car Hire

Who flies to Ramon Airport?

When the new airport comes online, it will be a direct transition of the airlines and routes from Eilat airport, namely just Arkia who operate routes to Ben Gurion and Sde Dov, both Tel Aviv airports and Israir Airlines who operate routes to Haifa as well as both Tel Aviv Airports. The good news for international arrivals is that Ryanair will be operating a limited schedule from European destinations as well as Wizz Air who will be operating from Poland. Should demand increase, it’s expected that these budget airlines will increase their schedules to meet that demand and also likely attract other budget airlines such as Easyjet, which if came to pass would mark a significant milestone in Ramon Airports progress. The airport will certainly be capable of supporting such growth and is part of the long term plan for the region and Israel as a whole.

Much like Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion, 4x4 and SUV rental at Ramon Airport is expected to be in high demand and whilst the rental agents will have fleets in place to accommodate this demand, we still recommend you book early to guarantee availability.
