Manchester Airport to Tel Aviv flights set to increase

Tue, 28 Jul, 2009

Jet2.com has announced that it will continue to fly routes from Manchester Airport to Tel Aviv throughout 2010.

Furthermore, due to the popularity of the service, the regularity of flights will increase between March 22nd and October 28th 2010 to twice weekly.

The budget airline has been flying to Tel Aviv from Manchester Airport since May 2009.

Jet2.com boss Philip Meeson noted that demand for the route has come in part from the Jewish community in the north of England, and that Manchester has become a "gateway" to "one of Isreal's largest cities".

He said: "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."

Earlier this month Manchester Airport announced the re-opening of its flagship terminal one after a £50 million modernisation.
