Also, Ben-Gurion Airport has spacious lifts, and, of course, fully equipped restrooms for the disabled.
After arrival, the most convenient transport to browse Israel – is a special van. Smartrip offers our guests modern vehicles with a lift for the disabled in the back. Such vans can take on board up to six wheelchair users. Plus, there are the usual places for escorts and guides attendants.
