Ryanair Resumes Operations To/From Israel From Mon 3rd June

Ryanair flights to and from Israel have been on hiatus since February 2024 due to the closure of Ben Gurion International Airport’s Terminal 1. This terminal specifically caters to low-cost carriers. Ryanair, along with other budget airlines, found it financially unfeasible to operate from the costlier Terminal 3. The good news is, that Terminal 1 has now reopened, paving the way for Ryanair’s return! ryanair tel aviv israel

Following Ben Gurion International Airport’s decision to re-open low-cost Terminal 1, Ryanair, Europe’s No.1 airline, announced that it will resume operations to/from Tel Aviv from Mon, 3rd June. The airline will operate 40 flights per week to/from Athens, Bari, Berlin, Budapest, Malta, Milan and Paphos.

A Ryanair spokesperson said: “It is great news that Ben Gurion Airport is re-opening Terminal 1, which has enabled Ryanair to resume our Tel Aviv operations from Mon, 3rd June, with 40 weekly flights to/from key markets such as Cyprus, Germany, Greece, and Italy available to book now at ryanair.com.” ryanair tel aviv israel

Besides Ryanair, some of the other low-cost companies that typically utilize Terminal 1 at Ben Gurion International Airport are:

  • Wizz Air: This is a significant carrier offering budget-friendly flights throughout Europe and the Middle East. Actually, they were one of the first low-cost airlines to resume flights to Israel. They restarted in March of 2024 and plan to expand their routes further in the following months.
  • easyJet: A popular European low-cost airline with a wide network of destinations. Likely, easyJet will also resume flights once Terminal 1 reopens. They are a major low-cost player in Europe, and Tel Aviv is a popular destination.
  • Transavia: A Dutch airline operating flights to various European and Mediterranean locations.
  • Pegasus Airlines: A Turkish low-cost carrier offering connections throughout Europe and the Middle East.

Roaming charges in Israel can be quite expensive, so it’s important to be aware of the costs before you travel. Remember, it’s always best to plan ahead and choose the option that best suits your travel needs and budget.
