Flights at the new Ramon International Airport in Timna, north of Eilat, are expected to begin taking off in 2017, the Transportation Ministry said this week.

It will serve as the alternative to Ben-Gurion International Airport during emergencies, and will replace the current Eilat airport.

The airport is named after Israeli astronaut Ilan Ramon, who was killed in the Columbia space shuttle explosion in 2003, and his son Assaf, who was killed in a fighter jet crash in 2009.
