Singapore Airlines, recognized as one of the leading airlines in the world, is planning to start direct flights from Singapore to Tel Aviv, Israel. Singapore has also seen an increase in Israeli visitors in recent years, considering its role as a hub for both the Far East and Australia. While previous attempts to connect Singapore and Israel have been unsuccessful, other Asian airlines such as Hainan Airlines from China and Air India have been successful. Additionally, the introduction of Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific is one of the direct competitors of Singapore Airlines. Singapore Airlines will announce specific flight dates for flights to Tel Aviv soon.
