Plenty of office space remains actually at the airport that has remained empty for years and has been impossible to let.

The Airport police have been converting a small warehouse (building 90). Think this was previously rented by Gulfstream.

I wonder if the Airport is Old Kent Road
or Mayfair?

Not sure, but I believe LTNman features on the go to jail cardsÖ.

There has been little or no work on the MSCP this week.

Interesting, the path a fire takes. Three vehicles can be seen on the middle floor, a silver Transit (?) type van on the left, a silver Astra van in the middle, and another vehicle on the right. Both vans are un-marked, the Astra is parked bumper to bumper with the burnt out car, the Transit (?) is parked the width of a road away.

This week is week 9 of up to 16 weeks the airport operator said would be needed to demolish the car park. Meanwhile work is progressing slowly on the temporary drop off area that replaces the existing temporary drop off area. This one is just outside the bus station and looks small due to a lack of space. Gridlock for the summer? Guaranteed.

Maybe that will be the premium drop off area?!

Of note this weekend was Wizzair UK restarting TLV flights again, Easyjet won't restart until end of month but looking at flight prices have good bookings for Easter.
EDIT: Although today's flight had to divert to Beirut.

Construction update

Slow progress throughout the airport. Photos taken Monday.




Latest temporary drop off area under construction?


Work about to start on a temporary pick up area that is still the wrong side of the tunnel or is something else going on?


Walking route to terminal


Not much action apart from the digger in the background.

They have been collection soil there for years now. As they have a mass soil shortage under expansion plans I have no idea where it will finally go.

Actually you might be right. Two tier drop off and pick up charges, one premium by the terminal with an eye watering charge and one in the mid term at a reduced rate?

Beirut 😬 did they really think having Beirut as an alternate for a Tel Aviv flight was a sensible idea?
Particularly when a proportion of customers would be Israeli passport holders?
There are safer alternatives such as Eilat, Paphos and Larnaca.

I don't think you are very up to date with current situation in Lebanon. Tonight half the El Al fleet diverted to Beruit along with Arkia plus a few other airlines.

Not sure that's true. For the last few days flights have been showing as 'diverted to BEY' on Flightradar24 when they've actually landed in TLV. The ads-b reporting discontinues as the aircraft approach the TLV area and flight radar just makes a guess based on the last position. See UAL84/85 on the 7/8 March - shows diverted to BEY on arrival and then yet the return flight leaves TLV on time.

Wondering if anyone has any suggestions re drop off. We have to drop our kids off for a school trip at 4am on a Sunday in a couple of weeks time. School have asked that we take them to the terminal building. Given the lack of any short term parking, the only options I can think of are:

- pre book a day in the short or mid stay car parks (both around £40)
- use long stay, free or £7 depending on how long it takes me to do the return shuttle bus journey. Donít think I need to pre book this.
- have another person in the car who can hang around nearby while I take them to the terminal, unfortunately I donít think this is practically an option for us.

My initial idea was to park at parkway and use the dart, but there donít seem to be any trains at that time (replacement buses) and Iím concerned there wonít be access through the station from the car park.

Any other suggestions? I have to do the same on the return but that is around midday and the long term car park option feels a bit more bearable then.

The barriers are permanently in the up position at the entrance and exit to the mid term to aid traffic flow to the drop of so you can’t collect or pay for a ticket. I would be inclined to just park up in a mid term bay and book nothing.
