Irish low-cost airline Ryanair will open its first route in Israel. From the end of March it will operate a daily flight between Tel Aviv – Paphos, Cyprus in each direction. The fare set at €30 for April and May. The price set as a special introductory fare, about a third of the “discounted” cost of a flight to Cyprus.
The airline, which up to now has operated flights to Ovda Airport near Eilat, expects to carry 100, 000 passengers a year on this route.
RyanAir spokesperson said that in just days a large number of tickets on all flights between Israel and Cyprus through May have been grabbed. “We urge all travelers who are interested in getting tickets at the discounted price to act immediately and buy tickets, ” he said. “We expect all of them to be gone in a very short time.”
El Al subsidiary Sun d’Or announced that from the end of May 2017 it will fly twice weekly to Malaga. The flight will depart from Tel Aviv on Sundays and Thursdays, with fares starting at $450.
