Sde Dov Airport ( , lit. Dov Field, ), also known as Dov Hoz Airport ( , Nemal HaTe'ufa Dov Hoz, ) is an airport located in Tel Aviv, Israel which mainly handles domestic flights to Eilat and (Ovda) and northern Israel (the Galilee), and Israeli Golan Heights. It is Tel Aviv's largest airport and the second largest in the area, after Ben Gurion International Airport. The airport is named after Dov Hoz, one of the pioneers of Jewish aviation. The airport will close at some point in the future after an agreement was struck repurposing land which houses it for luxury residential apartments. Commercial flights will move to Ben Gurion Airport near the city of Lod, southeast of Tel Aviv. The airport is a focus city for Arkia Israel Airlines and Israir Airlines.
