Israel Travel Check-in - Times for our customer’s convenience

To facilitate and ease the check-in and boarding procedures during your Israel travel plans, please come to the check-in counter according to the times shown below.


Economy Class Passengers - You should arrive at the check-in counters 3 hours before the scheduled departure time as listed on the flight ticket.

Premium ​Class, Business Class, VIPs and First Class Passengers - You should arrive at the check-in counters 2 hours before the scheduled departure time as listed on the flight ticket.

Passengers traveling with hand luggage only complete their security check in a designated queue in the Buy & Bye Hall after performing self-ch​eck-in. 


Please Note

  • Late arrival at the check-in counter may deprive you of your rights to benefits, including those provided by virtue of the Aviation Services Law (Compensation and Assistance for Flight Cancellation or Change of Conditions), 5772–2012
  • In light of the above, and since the security check must be completed before you reach the check-in counter, it is recommended to arrive at the airport about four hours before the scheduled flight departure time
  • Check-in for Israel travel flights closes about one hour before departure. Late passengers will not be able to check in once their flight has closed
  • Passengers with special needs, including passengers traveling with children and/or infants, need extra time at check-in
  • The boarding gates close about 10 minutes before take-off. Late passengers will not be accepted for the flight.
  • Due to the Linate Airport shutdown and the transfer of all flights to the Milano Malpensa Airport, a heavy load was created, resulting in long queues for security check and passport control.
    To avoid delays, please note that starting 1 September, EL AL check-in counters will close 60 minutes prior to departure (current closing time is 45 minutes prior to departure).
     ​
  • On flights departing Brussels - t​ransit and Web check-in passengers need to present themselves at the security room next to B11 , 1 hour prior to departure.​

Have a pleasant flight!
