Israel unveiled a third terminal at its main international airport. The Ben-Gurion Airport 2000 terminal was officially opened in a gala event Thursday, four years behind schedule. The cavernous, expensively appointed facility features “sleeve” walkways to airplanes, a break from Israel’s tradition of busing passengers to their outgoing flights. At the ceremony, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon described construction of Terminal 3 as “one of the greatest infrastructure projects carried out in Israel since the establishment of the state.”
