Ryanair is launching a direct flight from Thessaloniki, Greece to Tel Aviv, Israel which will start in April 2019 operating two weekly flights. The Irish low-cost airline is launching this flight route for their Greek summer schedule, the largest it has ever been. With this addition of Thessaloniki, Ryanair will now have 11 routes to and from European destinations to Tel Aviv, as well as 15 routes into the southern Israeli city of Eilat. The flights operate between April and June 2019.
The new flight route will also open up the possibility of combining Greece tour packages with tours in Israel and Jordan for a combined Mediterranean trip.
