Wizz Air said that a decreased demand for flights to Greece prompted the airline to suspend a few routes. The international company operating in Israel maintains the majority of its routes from Tel Aviv and offers flights to 15 countries. According to the company, Wizz Air offers alternative routes close to the same country where the routes were suspended, to ensure that the connection between destinations is not affected.
The company has already begun selling tickets to the three destinations that have been removed from the Ben Gurion Airport, and the step affects many Israeli passengers. Now, according to the company's policy, customers will be able to choose between receiving a full refund, a 120% refund in Wizz credit, or an alternative flight.
On Wednesday, United Airlines announced that it will not return to fly to Israel at least until May 9. The American company, which operates a daily route from Tel Aviv to New York, canceled its flights to Ben Gurion Airport on April 19 following the Iranian missile attack.
