The Israel Airports Authority said Sunday the Transportation Ministry approved its NIS 709m. development budget for 2006 to 2008. The budget still needs cabinet approval. The IAA said NIS 509m. of the budget was earmarked for new projects, while the remainder would be used to complete existing programs. The most prevalent of the new projects involve establishment of an automatic check-in system at Ben-Gurion Airport; investment in the airport's navigation and air control systems; and investing in the information and computer networks at the airport and border terminals. Of the existing projects, improving services to passengers and strengthening security networks would receive priority.
