The aviation industry within Israel is comprised of a few main carriers. El Al is Israel’s national flag carrier operating international services from its main hub at Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv, which is the main international gateway to Israel. Ben Gurion International is also used by Sun d'Or International Airlines as its main hub. Domestic and regional services ex Tel Aviv are operated out of Sde Dov airport, which is the main hub for Arkia Israel Airlines, Ayit Aviation and Tourism, Israir Airlines and Tamir Airways. Outside of Tel Aviv, Chim-Nir Aviation is an airline based at Herzliya Airport.

The Security Department of the Israeli Ministry of Transport operates the Aviation Security Operations Center (ASOC) to control the security procedures for the arrival of aircraft into and through Israeli airspace. The Civil Aviation Authority of Israel is the regulator for the civil aviation sector responsible for promoting aviation safety, development, maximising the level of aviation transport services, safeguarding Israel's air carriers; minimalising environmental impact; and implementing government policy concerning civil aviation.
