El Al is to add six additional flights each week from London to Tel Aviv, starting in May.
The airline announced yesterday that it is to operate a third daily flight from the UK. The additional flights, from Sunday to Friday, will be from Luton. Low-cost airline Thomson, which has been flying to Tel Aviv from Luton since November 2007, is to discontinue flights after Passover.
Uri Danor, El Al’s UK vice-president said he was “excited” about the new venture. “We have had good co-operation from Luton to enable us bring this service to the market,” he said.
