El Al will be flying to Israel again from summer 2019, for the first time since 2001.
El Al’s new service between Manchester airport and Ben Gurion airport will offer nonstop flights, scheduled to run three times a week from May 26th. At the World Travel Market trade show in London, Michael Strassburger, El Al Israel Airlines Vice President Commercial and Industry Affairs, announced that the 3 weekly services will operate on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Bookings before November 26th have introductory fares starting from £199. All flights include a full meal service and for an additional cost, Wi-Fi can be purchased on board.
Strassburger anticipates that the new route will be a raging success, transporting thousands of passengers to and from Israel : “Manchester has a large Jewish community and is a centre of business and tourism”.
