THEY DON'T STAMP ANYMORE AND YOU CAN TAKE AS MUCH LIQUIDS AS YOU LIKE! I think they might have overhauled the airport since the last season - the checks both into and out of Israel were very simple, probably simpler and quicker than in Ben Gurion. The staff were all quite professional and I didn't notice any shouting - the checks were standard as in all of Israel, I had a very thorough check, but it was quick and not unreasonably invasive. There's a free drinking water fountain and a nice place to lay down and relax. All in all not as bad as last year it seems.

Nice place to relax during waiting and free cold drinking water. Recommended to arrive 3 hours before flying.
Security agents took my luggage and stole my sunglasses, earphones and phone charger. I mean.... what's this? At the arrival the sunglasses and the earphones were gone after they took my luggage and "invited" me to a private security room. Same thing happened at the departure, same room, this time my charger was missing, among other small things. Shame on you all for this kinda north korean way of dealing with tourists. I do no advise anyone to go there. Robbers, that what they are. Such a shame, these people are creating a false image of the state of Israel. Shame on you all!

Really bad airport. you have to spend 2+ hours on security checks . 7 of them !!! They love to put stickers on your bag and scan them all the time. they treat you like you are a terrorist and you need. Come at least 3 hours before your flight. Male toilet with long queues as only one urinal working. Very far from eilat (60KM). Positives: mostly girls working at the airport and you can go throught the checks with water and there is free wifi and free cold water fountain.

Apparently the staff is not used to 3 international flights within an hour and consequently departure proceedings were terrible. Chaotic and rude behaviour created a mess that almost led to a departure delay of two and a half hours, luckily the Captain negotiated a new slot...arrival was ok. Still ridicolous that they meticulously searched our stuff on departure but ignored us on arrival...
