Starting 24th June 2017, Wizz Air will fly to Tel Aviv Ben Gurion International Airport from London Luton four times a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, with prices starting from £69.99.
The Luton – Tel Aviv route comes in the wake of Wizz Air establishing a new base at London Luton using a new Airbus A320. Wizz Air is the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe and the second biggest carrier using Luton Airport. It has been running regular flights from Luton for over 12 years.
Sharon Ehrlich Bershadsky, director of the UK and Ireland for the Israel Government Tourist Office said, “The announcement of Wizz Air’s new route between Tel Aviv and London Luton highlights the growing demand for travel to Israel. Last year, we were pleased to announce that tourism from the UK to Israel has increased by 10% and this is a great indication that we have the support of Wizz Air to help bolster our efforts within the market.”
Commenting further on the announcement, Sorina Ratz, communications manager of Wizz Air, said, “Today’s announcement further underlines our commitment to Israel, and we hope that our newest low-fare route from Tel Aviv to London Luton will be appreciated by our customers. The upcoming service, with a convenient schedule of four frequencies weekly, will further stimulate tourism and hospitality industries and strengthen business relations between the countries. All our passengers looking forward to visit the United Kingdom on WIZZ’s low fares can already book their tickets on wizzair.com from only £69.99*.”
The new Wizz Air Tel Aviv service will be competiting directly with easyJet and El Al who also operate out of London Luton.
