Dear Mr. Szabo,

Thank you for your e-mail.

In reply to your remark I would like to inform you as follows:

The IAA site was characterized in 2003, written

in CMS Microsoft technology and supports internet

Explorer browser.

This type of system is based on technology which

Varies often, and so do the users' requirements.

The "Life Expectancy" of such software is estimated at

5 to 7 years.

Since 2003 we have had many such requests for other

Browsers from users.

The IAA has considered the requests and has concluded

That vast changes should be made. However, in order to

do so we need to develop a new site which will respond

among others to the need for other browsers.

The new site is expected in a few months.

In spite of the said above, and in order to satisfy

the need of the users of other browsers in the meantime the IAA is now

Updating the flight screen (arrivals and departures) information, the most

sought information on our site, with an emphasis on adjusting the information

to the users with disabilities. The flight information will comply
with the W3C standard.

We do hope that the update will be complete soon.

In the meantime you may ask the Information at Ben-Gurion Airport –
972-3-9755555 (1 for English and then 9 for human voice).

We are sorry for the inconvenience caused to you and

other users.

Best regards,

Thalma Shamir
