easyJet launches Tel Aviv-Rome route

Low-cost airline introduces its fifth route from Israel to Europe with two weekly flights to Italy

European low-cost airline easyJet last week launched its first flight from Tel Aviv to Rome. The flight, which departed Ben-Gurion Airport to Rome's Fiumicino Airport, was the first of two weekly flights on the Israel-Italy route on Tuesdays and Saturdays.


Fares on the new route start at €44.24 (about $60) for a one-way ticket from Tel Aviv to Rome and €42.74 ($58) for a one-way ticket from Rome to Tel Aviv, all taxes included.


According to easyJet, the new flights connect two top attractive destinations for business and leisure. "Rome offers to its visitors the incredible charm of one of the greatest European cultural heritage as well as being a dynamic modern capital city. With convenient schedules every Tuesdays and Saturdays, it is ideal for a short break, a business trip or visit friends and families," the company said in a statement.

The Tel Aviv-Rome route is the fifth on easyJet’s portfolio, which already connects Israel to London's Luton Airport (up to 11 frequencies per week), Manchester (two-three times a week), Geneva and Basel (four times a week each).


Hugh Aitken, easyJet’s UK and Middle East commercial manager, said of the Tel Aviv-Rome route: "We already experience high demand for these flights, and I am confident that this route will become very popular among our customers in Europe and Israel.


"The new route emphasizes that easyJet is a long-term committed partner of the Israeli economy and tourism industry," he added.
