easyJet flights to Tel Aviv are on the increase. The airline has announced that a third route between the UK and Tel Aviv will open from Gatwick on 1st April 2014 .
The airline, which already flies to Tel Aviv from Manchester Airport and London Luton Airport, will start services three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, with fares starting from £90.49 on sale from the 10th December 2013.
“easyJet is delighted to be able to offer new services to Tel Aviv from a third airport in the UK” comments Hugh Aitken, easyJet’s UK Commercial Manager: “We expect to carry around 50,000 passengers each year on the new Gatwick service. Combined with our flights from London Luton and Manchester this means we will operate 16 weekly flights to Tel Aviv from the UK.”
“One of the reasons for launching new flights from London Gatwick is because Tel Aviv’s appeal as a popular leisure destination has been growing. Almost 100,000 passengers travelled from both London Luton and Manchester with easyJet in the past year.”
easyJet started flying to Tel Aviv in November 2009 from London Luton Airport. Across Europe the airline currently serves Tel Aviv from London Luton and Manchester
