Report: Crowds Expected at Airport as Vacation Ends

About 200,000 people are expected to enter and exit Israel in 1,200 flights between Friday and Sunday, according to a Friday report by Israel Defense Forces Radio.

Many will be Israelis returning home before next week's start of the school year, while many will be taking advantage of last-minute deals offered by the airlines. With about two million travellers using the airport this summer, traffic was up about four percent from 2011.
