London Gatwick-Tel Aviv service launched by easyJet

London Gatwick-Tel Aviv service launched by easyJet
10 Dec 2013

Budget carrier easyJet is to begin operating between London Gatwick and Tel Aviv from 1 April 2014.

Tickets for the new flight, which will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, go on sale tomorrow (10 December). 

The airline already flies to the Israeli city from both Manchester Airport and London Luton Airport and Hugh Aitken, UK commercial manager for easyJet, said the company was responding to demand: 'One of the reasons for launching new flights from London Gatwick is because Tel Aviv's appeal as a popular leisure destination has been growing. 

'Almost 100,000 passengers travelled from both London Luton and Manchester with easyJet in the past year.'

Furthermore, two in five passengers surveyed by the airline said they had already recommended visiting Israel to a friend.

As well as launching this new route, easyJet has also increased the number of flights it is offering between Manchester and Tel Aviv from two to three per week between 17 February 2014 and 28 April 2014.ADNFCR-408-ID-801670496-ADNFCR
