Israel has only one international airport – its airport code is TLV, and its name is Ben Gurion Airport.
There are direct flights from most of Europe as well as from the US, Canada, Russia, India, China & S.Korea.
Visa - Citizens of the EU, US, Canada, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, S.Korea and most of South American countries do not require a Visa to enter Israel (See detailed list here). If you do require a Visa, DroidCon management can issue an invite letter that will make the process easier – contact us.
We recommend staying at Tel Aviv city, rather than in the city of the venue.
There are many hotels by the Tel Aviv beach, and it should be a nice area to stay.
The drive time between Tel Aviv city center to the venue is about 30 minutes, depending on traffic.
The airport is located about 20km from Tel Aviv city center, and 25km from the DroidCon’s venue. Drive time to either location is around 30 minutes, depending on traffic.
The airport operates a taxi service with flat fares to Tel Aviv (Around 150-170 NIS).
A taxi directly to the DroidCon’s venue at daytime is 120 NIS.
There is also a train to Tel Aviv city center directly from the airport.
