Israel’s largest airport and the primary international airport serving the Greater Tel Aviv area, Ben Gurion Airport, is now here for Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition from FSAddon Publishing.
Since its establishment and to the present day, the airport has served as the main entrance and exit gateway for both the citizens and guests of the State of Israel, and as such bears witness to the history of the State and the main events which formed it.
Named after the first Prime Minister of Israel, Ben Gurion Airport was established by the British Mandate authorities in the Land of Israel as part of a broad plan to lay down airports in mandate-time (pre-state) Israel.
In 1935 work began on the infrastructure and in April 1937 four concrete runways were completed, each 800m long and 100m wide.
In 1937, the construction of an aircraft workshop (hangar) was started, in preparation for the Hannibal aircraft which were to arrive from the British “Imperial Airways”. This workshop that was built with the assistance of a German company continues serving El Al’s Boeing jets to this very day.
