Michael Strassburger, Vice President Commercial and Industry Affairs, EL AL, said: “We are working continually to expand the airline’s route network. To provide a suitable solution for the demands of our business customers as well as for outgoing Israeli traffic, and at the same time to strengthen incoming traffic to Israel, we will offer non-stop flights to Dublin, beginning summer 2020.

“Dublin is an activity base for hi-tech companies. We believe that opening new routes will increase business ties and tourism to Israel and will strengthen political ties with the countries.”

Israel had just under 12,000 Irish visitors last year.
