Barring any last-minute reprieve, the airport is set to close at midnight after over 60 years of commercial and military service.
In January, Israel's new Ramon Airport near Eilat - the first entirely civilian airport to open since Israel’s independence - was inaugurated.
The shutdown comes after the mayor of Eilat, Meir Yitzchak Halevi, announced that if a solution was not found for the closure of the Sde Dov airport, he would declare a state of emergency.
Sde Dov had 735,887 passengers in 2012, down from 879,922 in 2001.
