How to get to 2019 Eurovision Song Contest?

Tel Aviv is the cultural and business centre of Israel, located 45 minutes by road from Israel’s main international airport, Ben Gurion. The list of airlines flying to Tel Aviv is extensive and includes leading low-cost companies such as easyJet, Wizz, and Ryanair who provide great connections from most European cities.

Where should I base myself ?

The weather in mid-May should be perfect for the beach, strolling the boulevards, and enjoying Israel. Basing yourself directly in the host city of Tel Aviv is likely to be the most popular option for Eurovision fans heading to Israel in 2019.
