Jet2.com to increase services to Tel Aviv
Customer demand has led low-cost airline Jet2.com to increase the regularity of services between Manchester Airport and Tel Aviv.
Originally launched in May 2009, the airline has announced that the service will now operate through to 2010, with twice weekly operations between March 22-October 28, 2010.
Pini Shani, deputy director of Marketing Administration and Director Overseas Department for the Israel Ministry of Tourism, said: "It is fantastic news that the Jet2.com Tel Aviv flights will be available throughout 2010 and the increased frequency will be a massive appeal to business and leisure travellers alike from the north.
"This welcome investment into tourism to Israel will undoubtedly be of benefit to the consumer and strengthen links between the north of England and Tel Aviv."
Philip Meeson of Jet2.com said: "Jet2.com is the only airline operator to offer a direct service to Tel Aviv from the north of England and the route has proved to be an important gateway to the north's Jewish community to one of Israel's largest cities.
"We listened to our customers and have increased the frequency of the route for 2010 - we are in an unrivalled position to offer both the lowest ever fares and fastest service into Israel. Tel Aviv is an extremely popular destination and we are confident there will be a huge demand for this service."
