Eilat Airport is an Israeli airport located in the city of Eilat, and named for Arkia Airlines founder Yakov Hozman (Jacob Housman). Eilat Airport is located in the central area of the city, next to Route 90 (The Arava Road). It mostly handles domestic flights to Tel Aviv and Haifa with international flights operating instead to Uvda International Airport, but a few international flights on aircraft that can handle the relatively short runway use Eilat as well. Eilat Airport was established in 1949 by the Israel Air Force, following the 1948 Israeli War of Independence.
