Israel adds UK carrier

ISRAEL will gain another UK carrier when easyJet introduces a daily service (except Friday) from Luton to Tel Aviv on 2 November.  The airline, probably for the first time by a so-called low cost carrier, is offering what might be termed ethnic meals, kosher snacks supplied by easily the largest supplier of its kind for Heathrow, Hermolis, based in west London.  The kosher food will be priced the same as easyJet's standard menu, with sandwiches from £3.50, including egg mayonnaise with tomato and cress bloomer, smoked Salmon and cream cheese bagel, mozzarella & tomato Panini and muffin/chocolate orange mini cake.  To help introduce the service easyJet painted a London bus, the promotion launched by Israeli Ambassador Ron Prosor and easyJet UK General Manager Paul Simmons.  El Al also flies from Luton, BA and El Al from Heathrow and Jet2 from Manchester. www.easyJet.com
