Low-cost Euro­pean car­rier WIZZ Air ramps up ex­pan­sion in Is­rael

The Jewish Voice - - NEWS IN REVIEW -

(JNS.org) WIZZ Air, Cen­tral and Eastern Europe’s largest low­cost air­line, last week an­nounced the con­tin­u­a­tion of its ex­pan­sion in Is­rael, with four new low-fare routes set to fly di­rectly to the Jewish state’s south­ern­most city of Ei­lat.

The new routes will pro­vide ser­vice to Ei­lat from Riga (Latvia), Ka­tow­ice (Poland), Prague (Czech Repub­lic) and Bucharest (Ro­ma­nia) be­gin­ning in the win­ter of 2017.

The routes will sup­ple­ment 18 other con­nec­tions that are al­ready of­fered by the low-cost Euro­pean car­rier to Tel Aviv and Ei­lat. Tick­ets for the new flights are al­ready on sale.

“To­day’s an­nounce­ment is fur­ther un­der­lin­ing WIZZ’s com­mit­ment to the Is­raeli mar­ket and its con­tin­u­ous ex­pan­sion since the first WIZZ flight from Tel Aviv in 2012,” the air­line said in a state­ment, at­tribut­ing the ex­pan­sion to “grow­ing de­mand” for its ser­vices in the Is­raeli mar­ket­place.

In 2017, WIZZ will of­fer 12 new ser­vices from Tel Aviv and Ei­lat Ovda air­ports, ex­pand­ing its flights from Is­rael to 22 routes in 9 coun­tries through­out Europe.
