In the last two days, the owners of more than 1,300 suitcases that arrived at Ben Gurion Airport from around the world have been located.

“We are in the midst of an operation to assist airlines to return all identified luggage at Ben Gurion Airport to their owners,” the Airports Authority stated Tuesday. “The operation will continue as required.”

The operation comes as Ben Gurion Airport is experiencing unprecedented mobbing due to the hundreds of thousands who are traveling abroad after two years of the COVID-19 pandemic, and as Israel’s tourism industry is recuperating, recently welcoming Israel’s one-millionth tourist in 2022.

Similar to other destinations in countries in the world, Ben Gurion has been finding it hard to return to full operations after two years of limited international travel, often resulting in chaotic scenes at the airport.
