In an attempt to attract more Israelis to the Buy&Bye shopping and dining complex at Ben Gurion International Airport's Terminal 3, the Israel Airports Authority (IAA) is considering several new ideas including a pub aimed at young people from the country's center.

The Buy&Bye complex was designed to attract not only departing travelers and their companions, but also the public at large. The complex includes stores, restaurants and coffee shops. However, these stand almost empty throughout the week. The fact that most of the stores are closed on Shabbat doesn't exactly help.

The intimate apparel store Jacq Kobe has informed the IAA that it plans to shut down operations due to a lack of business. The IAA and store are negotiating termination of the five-year contract, which includes an additional two-year option. Should the store close, the IAA is considering setting up a pub in its place.

"One of the ideas raised in the past was to have a pub in Buy&Bye," the IAA spokeswoman said. "That idea is not being reexamined now, however, the IAA will consider similar proposals as necessary."
