easyJet, the UK-based budget airline, has announced a new direct route from Manchester to Tel Aviv, Israel. The new route will begin November 1, 2012, and operate year-round.
The initial schedule will be two flights per week. One-way fares start from £82.99 inclusive of taxes.
In a statement, the easyJet commercial manager said: “”We’re excited to be expanding our Manchester operation by launching easyJet’s first route to Tel Aviv from the North West of England today. There is a very strong cultural link between the North West of England and Tel Aviv, with a large Jewish community in Manchester and the surrounding areas, and we hope this direct route will demonstrate our commitment to providing low cost flight options for popular routes.”
