The busiest days will be September 28, two days before Rosh Hashanah, October 2, 5 before Yom Kippur, October 12 before Sukkot and October16, during Sukkot.
Israel Airports Authority chairman Ovadia Eli said extra staff will be on duty to help holiday travelers move through security and other pre- and post-travel processes as smoothly as possible.
Most Israeli hotels are at 90 percent occupancy for the holidays.
