Israel leads Ryanair charge

More major expansion was in the air for Ryanair last week, with Israel taking pole position as the airline launched a winter 2017 schedule with 19 routes, 15 of them new. The carrier also announced its biggest winter schedules so far for Madrid and Barcelona.

In Israel, Ryanair will operate seven new routes between Tel Aviv and Baden Baden, Gdansk, Krakow, Poznan and Wroclaw (all two weekly), Milan Bergamo (four weekly), and Paphos (daily).

From Eilat Ovda, there are eight new routes, all two weekly, to Baden Baden, Berlin, Brussels Charleroi, Frankfurt Hahn, Gdansk, Milan Bergamo, Poznan and Warsaw. They join existing services, also all two weekly, to Bratislava, Budapest, Krakow and Kaunas.

Ryanair said the new schedule provided enhanced access to Israel from its 200-airport network, with more routes and lower fares from European cities as the airline passed on lower fuel costs as part of its “Always Getting Better” programme.

Ryanair’s Madrid winter schedule includes new routes to Bari, Glasgow, Prague, Cagliari, Lamezia, Luxembourg, Naples, Newcastle, Nuremberg, Palermo and Verona, and more flights on four existing routes, or 52 in total.

At Barcelona, there are new routes to Krakow, Luxembourg, Prague, Venice, Brussels Charleroi and Naples, and more flights on eight existing routes, for a total of 45.

Barry Graham,

I wonder why they don't fly between Israel and the UK?
