Mahanaim Ben Yaakov AirportHistory:

The airfield at Mahanaim, east of Rosh Pina, was constructed by the British Mandate administration in the years 1943-1945, during the time of King George VI of Britain. The airfield served the British as a forward airfield, serving the needs of the British Military, against the French army operating in Syria.

Two intersecting runways were constructed for this purpose: 05 - 23 and 15 - 33 of a length of 1,080 meters and a width of 40 meters, surrounded by peripheral taxiways, in accordance with the British Standard. The paving method was rather interesting: Compressed aggregate for the covering of the runways, a layer of bitumen and on that an additional layer of gravel and asphalt.

Since 1948 - with the establishment of the State, the airfield was taken over by the Air Force. Battle positions and cover from the time of the British Mandate remained at the airfield, but the control tower and passenger terminal were not yet erected.

In the 1950s, Arkia began commercial activities at Rosh Pina, working from a hut, which served as the passenger terminal as well as the control tower.

1968 - The activities are transferred to the end of Runway 33, where a passenger Terminal was built.

1971 - A control tower and fire station are constructed at the airfield. The fire station is equipped with modern fire engines, replacing the firefighting services which were provided until that time by the Hatzor Haglilit Town Federation.

1994 - The Passenger Terminal is renovated and extended, in the wake of the increase in passenger traffic and the activities of Arkia.
