Low cost European airline easyJet is increasing the number of weekly flights it offers from London to Tel Aviv from 9 to 11 due to popularity.  The carrier also announced that its Tel Aviv-Manchester flight route will begin to operate year round.

According to Globes, “easyJet began the Luton-Tel Aviv route in 2009 and the flights proved popular so that the seven weekly flights were increased to nine last November. The carrier also operates four weekly flights between Tel Aviv and Geneva and four weekly flights between Tel Aviv and Basel, while Tel Aviv-Manchester flights began last November.”

EasyJet’s UK and Israel commercial manager Hugh Aitken said, “easyJet is a strategic committed partner of the Israeli tourism industry and we are pleased to bring more visitors to Israel. We aspire to expand our service from Tel Aviv with more European destinations, once the Open Sky agreement is implemented.”

    I wish EasyJet would fly out of NYC! I need another Israel vacation. I guess I’ll have to fly American Airlines to London, then fly to tel Aviv. Anyway, I’m happy that other people love ISraeli vacations as much as I do.
