EL AL has announced that it will begin operating non-stop flights from Dublin to Tel Aviv on 26 May 2020. The airline will offer three weekly non-stop flights from Dublin on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday, and to Dusseldorf on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The flights will operate on B737 aircraft with 138 seats in Economy Class and 16 seats in Business Class.
ATTS Travel Representation Solutions will be the GSA for the airline in Ireland. Sales of flight tickets to the new destinations will begin on 4 September.
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.
