JNS.org – Ryanair, one of Europe’s top low-cost airlines, on Tuesday announced its first Israel flights.

Starting in November, Ryanair, which is based in Ireland, will operate routes between three European cities—Budapest, Kaunas, and Krakow—and Eilat’s Ovda Airport.

There will be two weekly return flights to and from Eilat on each route. It is expected the routes will serve a combined 40,000 passengers annually. Tickets for the new flights go on sale July 8.

David O’Brien, Ryanair’s chief commercial officer, said, “Ryanair is pleased to announce our entry into the Israeli market. … We are continuing to negotiate with the Israeli authorities, and we look forward to growing our Israeli route network in the future.”
