British Airways expanding London-Tel Aviv service

Ben Gurion Airport

From next summer, British Airways will add six weekly flights between London and Tel Aviv.

Starting in the summer of 2015, British Airways is raising the seat capacity on the London-Tel Aviv route by about 50%, the airline announced today. Six weekly flights will be added, raising the total number to 20. British Airways says that it operates a longhaul service on its Tel Aviv-London route, despite the relatively short flight duration and distance, offering advanced entertainment systems with personal touchscreens, high quality catering and free offering of quality soft and alcoholic beverages. All the airline flights on the route are operated via Heathrow Terminal 5.

British Airways Israel Manager Yael Katan said, “Due to the growing demand for our service to London and long-distance flights, we have decided to expand our Israel operation, with a significant increase in seat capacity and frequency. In addition, we have recently changed our schedule in order to offer convenient connections to various North American destinations, specifically in the West Coast which are extremely popular with our Israeli passengers, such as San Francisco, Los Angeles and Vegas.”
