No current proposal to start flights to Tel Aviv: govt

New Delhi: The government has no immediate proposal to start flight services to the Israeli city of Tel Aviv, it told Parliament today.
The latest statement comes three weeks after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced during his visit to Israel that "direct air connectivity would soon be established between Delhi, Mumbai and Tel Aviv".
However, Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha today said there was "no" proposal for flights to Tel Aviv.
The question posed to him in the Lok Sabha was "whether the government proposes to start flight services to Tel Aviv in Israel from airports in the country".
