From July 14, Air India to fly four days a week to Israel

New Delhi: With tourist volumes going up, Air India will increase the frequency of its Delhi-Tel Aviv flights from three to four per week from July 14, said an Israeli tourism ministry official today.

Air India will now fly a 256-seater Boeing 787 Dreamliner every Saturday, in addition to those presently being operated on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, it said in a statement. At present, besides the Air India, Israeli carrier El Al operates flights between Mumbai and Tel Aviv.

The ministry said another Israeli airline ‘Arkia’ too has also showed interest to operate direct flights between Israel and India to cater to the significant rise in the air traffic volume between the two countries.
“We are pleased with the Air India’s move to increase weekly flight frequency in light of the significant rise in tourist arrivals from India. The outbound numbers to Israel have grown exponentially in the last few years and this introduction will help meet the growing demand from India.
