Budget airline debuts Israel flights19 June 2007
Thomsonfly has become the first budget airline to offer flights to Israel. The low-fare carrier will start services to Tel Aviv from Manchester and Luton airports on November 1, with one-way fares from Â£79.99. Three flights a week will be on offer to and from the Israeli city.
Thomsonfly commercial director Guy Stephenson said: “Our decision to launch into Tel Aviv will satisfy the huge demand for direct flights to this exciting Israeli city. The Israeli economy is strong and visitor numbers from the UK are up this year, which is a positive backdrop to the launch of new services.”
