AIR TRANSAT ADDS TEL AVIV TO SUMMER SCHEDULE

Air Transat has announced that it will be offering direct flights from Montreal to Tel Aviv. Also available from Toronto with a connection in Montreal, this non-stop flight between the Montréal–Trudeau airport and the David Ben-Gurion international airport of Tel Aviv will operate twice weekly, on Wednesdays and Sundays, from June 18 until late October.

Transat will also be offering an array of packages, guided tours and hotels for discovering Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, as well as the region’s many tourist attractions.
“We are thrilled to feature our very first destination in the Middle East. The demand for a direct Montreal-Tel Aviv flight was high for travellers visiting friends and family in the two cities and those in search of new discoveries,” said Annick Guérard, president and general manager of Transat Tours Canada.
“Tel Aviv is a vibrant and modern metropolis with plenty to offer when it comes to culture, gastronomy and nightlife. It is also the ideal gateway for a vacation immersing travellers in ancient and religious history.”
"This is great news for Quebecers who are eager for the re-establishment of a direct air link between Montreal and Israel, presenting travellers with a wonderful opportunity to discover the riches of the Holy Land, the beauty of its landscapes and the diversity of its peoples", says Ziv Nevo Kulman, the Consul General of Israel in Montreal and its Permanent Representative to ICAO.
"Thanks to this direct flight, more Israelis will also be able to enjoy the 150th and 375th anniversary festivities in Canada and Montreal."
“I welcome the decision by Transat to expand its operations into Israel. The opening of an air route is further proof of the success of our marketing efforts and that airlines view Israel as a sought-after tourism destination with economic potential. We view Transat as a partner that will help increase the numbers of tourists arriving in Israel and we hope to see additional routes opening soon,” addsed Yariv Levin, the Israeli Minister of Tourism.
Air Transat’s 2017 transatlantic flight schedule includes 28 destinations, and the company recently announced that it will be multiplying its direct flights to France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Ireland and Croatia, while maintaining service to the Netherlands, Switzerland, Belgium and the Czech Republic.
