Air Berlin has further expanded its services to Israel
Air Berlin has considerably increased its flights to Israel, with new non-stop services from Cologne and Munich. With four non-stop services from German cities to Tel Aviv, Air Berlin offers more connections than any other airline in this bilateral aviation market.
In March a third non-stop flight was added to the existing two direct connections between Berlin and Tel Aviv. Since March Air Berlin passengers from Cologne and Munich also have a choice of two non-stop flights a week to Tel Aviv.
Two further flights a week from Düsseldorf to Tel Aviv will be included in the schedule from June 2010. There are connecting flights from various German cities. Air Berlin is now also offering Business Class seats on the flights from Berlin, Düsseldorf and Munich to Tel Aviv.
Furthermore, Air Berlin’s network allows passengers to reach Tel Aviv from many international destinations in Europe and the USA (from 319 euros), in Russia (Moscow from 148 euros) and Thailand.
"The decision to operate a route between Germany and Israel taken by Air Berlin is of the greatest importance in realizing the tourism potential from Germany to Israel. This decision represents an expression of confidence in the Israeli tourism industry and is in line with the Tourism Ministry’s policy of open skies and removing obstacles from the path of incoming tourism to Israel. The new route will bring an increase in airline and seat capacity, encourage competition and bring lower prices that will ensure compliance with the ministry’s objectives of an additional million tourists within three years", said Stas Misezhnikov Tourism Minister of Israel.
