El Al Israel Airlines to fly Manchester to Tel Aviv

New route between Israel and northern England will begin flying three times a week from May 2019.

El Al Israel Airlines will begin flying from Manchester to Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport, from 26 May 2019.

The flights go three times a week and will operate on a Boeing 737-800 aircraft, offering two service classes, Business Class and Economy Class.

Ben Gurion is located between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. The two cities are less than an hour apart and boast history, culture, sandy beaches and year-round sunshine.

El Al’s vice president of commercial and industry affairs, Michael Strassburger, said: "Manchester has a large Jewish community and is a centre of business and tourism. This is good news not only for Israeli consumers - we also anticipate carrying thousands of tourists to Israel on this new route."

Yariv Levin, Israel’s Minister of Tourism said: "We are delighted that El Al will be opening up a flight path from Manchester to Tel Aviv.

"With more carriers flying to Israel, it is clear that there is an ever-increasing demand to visit our country, and we look forward to showing everything we have to offer to visitors in 2019."
