Ryanair has confirmed it will launch flights from its hub at Budapest Airport to Israel’s Eilat-Ovda Airport on 7 November.
The airline will operate the route twice weekly.
According to statistics issued by Budapest Airport, the Hungarian gateway recorded a significant 20% jump in Israeli visitors in 2014, and it expects
to serve considerably more passengers this year than the 230,000 people who travelled between the two countries last year.
With the addition of the Eilat-Ovda link to existing Tel Aviv services, the Central
Eastern European airport will now offer 16 weekly flights to the two Israeli airports.
Ryanair has already added over 3,000 weekly seats to the Hungarian gateway this year, with its stake at Budapest Airport growing 1% between August 2014 and August 2015.
