From Tel Aviv, Ryanair DAC CEO Eddie Wilson said:
“Since its launch in Israel, Ryanair has grown its presence in Israel steadily and reliably, diversifying the country’s tourism market, as well as generating year-round traffic and connectivity from across Europe. . As we enter our first post-Covid winter season, Ryanair is delighted to announce its largest-ever program to Israel, which will boost the recovery of Israeli passenger traffic and inbound tourism – including the exciting addition from Eilat to Ryanair’s growing network of over 225 airports. .
Today’s announcement is possible thanks to the strong working relationships we have developed with the Ministries of Tourism and Transport, the Israel Airports Authority and their local management teams. We look forward to leveraging this partnership to unlock the massive growth potential of the Israeli aviation market.
Ryanair’s position as Europe’s No.1 airline allows us to continue to deliver record-breaking schedules, including this winter’s schedule to/from Israel, which will see Ryanair operate 200 weekly flights to 25 destinations in 13 countries. This includes 1 new winter route to Tel Aviv (from Bari) and 4 exciting new routes to Eilat from key inbound markets such as France, Belgium, Poland and Lithuania.
Ryanair remains the partner of choice for airports, regions and governments given our proven track record of reliably growing and maintaining traffic – underpinned by an order book of 210 Boeing 737-8200s which will allow us to transport more than 225 million passengers per year by 2026.
To mark today’s announcement of Israel’s record-breaking schedule, we’ve launched a seat sale with fares starting at just 89 ILS / €24.99 one-way for travel from October 22 to March 23 which must be booked before midnight on Saturday 29e October on Ryanair.com.
Tourism Minister Yoel Razvozov said:
“The expansion of flights plays an important role in achieving the goals I have set for Israeli tourism: 10 million tourists per year by 2030, and Ryanair is a great partner to achieve this goal. The many tourists arriving in Israel following this record schedule will greatly contribute to Israel’s economy and provide exciting new economic opportunities. Moreover, I am happy that Ryanair’s program allows Israelis to explore exciting new destinations in Europe at affordable prices. The new flights to Tel Aviv and Eilat are a strong vote of confidence in the Israeli tourism industry, and I hope to see even more expansion of travel to our country in the future.”
Eilat Hotel Association CEO Itamar Elitzur said:
“The Eilat Hotel Association and the Israel Hotel Association welcome the return of low-cost flights to Ramon Airport.
Ryanair for the second time proved to be a pioneer and leader of foreign carriers operating flights to Eilat.
The renewal of Ryanair flights to Ramon Airport symbolizes and serves as a vote of confidence in the Israeli tourism product, which expresses the recovery of the international and local tourism industry.
We are proud of the opportunity and the cooperation between the Eilat Hotel Association, the Israeli Ministry of Tourism and the Israel Airports Authority. All aimed at restoring and encouraging the return of tourism to Eilat.
We hope that Ryanair’s return to Ramon Airport is a first wave that will encourage other airlines to fly to Eilat, especially in winter when Eilat’s warmth and sunshine is an ideal holiday destination. for European tourists.
