Transportation from Airport:
Ben-Gurion International Airport is located 40 minutes from Jerusalem. Taxi service and shared “Nesher” shuttle service provide safe, fast and economic transportation into Jerusalem.
As you exit the arrivals hall there will be a sign near the exit doors directing you to taxis.
There are shared taxis available to Jerusalem called “NESHER”. A dispatcher is just outside the exit doors by the taxi stand. These taxis fill up with 10 people and then bring each person to their destination in Jerusalem. The cost is approximately $20 per person.
The other option is a private taxi which costs approximately $75 per vehicle and takes only you directly to your destination without letting others off first.
To order return taxi service from Jerusalem to the airport, please see the hotel concierge.
