It was more than perfect! We found the driver very quickly and he was absolutely friendly. His English was very good, so the communication worked very well.

How to Get from Ovda Airport to Eilat and Other Destinations

A military airbase and a civilian air hub, Ovda Airport is located in Uvda region of southern Israel. Apart from handling Air Force traffic, it serves commercial flights to Eilat. In this article, we share tips on getting to Eilat and other popular Israel destinations by taxi, transfer, and public transport.

Taxi from Ovda Airport

Although usually there are cabs parked outside the air hub, Ovda Airport provides no official taxi stand. That means you cannot know for sure if you’ll order a car. Sometimes there’s a lack of taxi cabs, especially after the influx of arrived air travelers or at night. A trip to Eilat costs around 90-100 euros and takes near 50 minutes. If a taxi isn’t metered, be sure to agree on a price beforehand.

Transfer from Ovda Airport

To prepare a guaranteed and comfortable door-to-door transportation to Eilat city, you may pre-order a private taxi transfer. With such option, you won’t have to search for transport there and then, and will be able to depart for Eilat right after you pass the customs. It is especially beneficial for parents traveling with small children and passengers with heavy luggage. A driver meets passengers in the air hub’s arrivals hall to help them with suitcases and safely bring them to their destination.

One may book a transfer through the Internet. To make a reservation at Kiwitaxi, you should specify in the online booking your flight number, how many passengers there will be, an exact drop-off address, and if child seats are needed. You also may choose a transfer class for your trip, which is important, as a price depends on it. Getting to Eilat costs from 94 euros, taking around 50 minutes. All fares are fixed and won’t change unless you order extra services. The transfer can be paid online by card or to a driver in cash after the trip is finished.

Public Transport from Ovda Airport

A bus 392 departs from Ovda Airport to Eilat central station 5 times a day. The travel costs 8 euros per ticket, lasting about an hour. One may use urban transportation to reach other destinations too. You can take a bus to Be’er Sheva and change to number 380 to Tel Aviv or number 470 to Jerusalem. Both trips take around 4,5 hours and cost 25-30 euros per person.

Compared to the transfer service available 24/7, local public transport has a disadvantage of operating only at daytime.

About Ovda Airport

The air hub was originally constructed for military purposes. Although now it accepts heavy commercial aircrafts, Ovda Airport is expected to cease civilian flights when Eilat’s new international air hub is opened.
