Train רכבת:

Starting from September 2018 there is a direct train line between the airport and Jerusalem's central bus station which is at the main entrance to the city.
Train runs every half hour and cost 17 shekel per ride. I think there is a discount if you buy round trip.

To get to the train: Leave the terminal through exit 01 and it is directly on your right. You can buy a ticket from the automatic machines outside the station entrance.
Please note that the train only runs during the day and not at night. Check the Israeli rail  website in advance if you are not sure.

Yay.
So its seems like they will really be operating the train at least from J-lem to the Airport by Sukkos?
Any info on how long it will take to ride or how much it will cost or how many trains per hour?

my thoughts exactly, although shleping 3 suitcases and a hand luggage is a bit much for me...

How does a train make shleeping 3 suitcases any easier?

I agree. Trains are much easier then buses. Also on trains you can stand so after a long flight it will much more convenient to take the train. Also this leaves every half hour. So if it really works it make going to/from the airport so much easier.

Just remember the station in Jerusalem is a 15-minute ordeal to enter.
