With breathtaking views, ancient sites and a unique culture, and beautiful sunsets that cast long shadows over the Negev Desert as the light falls behind the dusty hills, entering the Israeli Eilat region provides a travel experience you won't find anywhere else in the world.
With a sense of adventure and a camera in your hand, it's time to take to the air with SWISS or one of our partner airlines on board your flight from Zurich to Eilat Airport. From the rugged landscape to the nearby town of Eilat, the region and sweeping Negev Desert that surround it are littered with historic sites that, when blended with the cosmopolitan vibrancy of nearby towns, enable a round holiday trip for every traveler.
Only 50 km south of the airport lies Eilat - Israel's southernmost city, nestled at the tip of the Gulf of Aqaba in the Red Sea. This beautiful port city enjoys warm weather all year round; the opportunities for swimming, diving and nightlife make it a popular tourist destination for visitors around the world. Uniquely located between Jordan and Saudi Arabia to the east and Egypt to the west, you will have plenty to do and see in this spa town.
The Egyptian border town of Taba, just a stone's throw from Eilat, offers two weeks of visa-free stays for travelers wishing to relax in its famous seaside resort. Go to the beach and enjoy a refreshing swim in the waters of the Red Sea - don't forget to bring your sun cream. The weather can be quite warm in the summer months, but for those looking for a little vitamin D there is no better way or place. Book your next holiday with SWISS or one of our partner airlines and fly comfortably and stylishly from Zurich to Eilat.
