Already in March, the Hungarian air carrier will fill its schedule with new connections. The carrier’s new network now includes a destination that has not been seen for a long time.
Low-cost airline Wizz Air followed in the footsteps of Ryanair and surprised its customers with the decision to resume connections to Israel. Spring flights to Tel Aviv will operate from six European airports, including Kraków-Balice airport. Flights are to be operated as many as three times a week. Travelers now have the opportunity to purchase tickets on the airline’s website.
Wizz Air will fly from Krakow to Tel Aviv
In the latest announcement, Wizz Air informed its customers about its plans to return to Israel. It turns out that, like its competitors, the Hungarian low-cost carrier was preparing for the possibility of resuming connections to the country that had been at war since October 2023. After analyzing the current situation, it was confirmed to return to Tel Aviv from March 1, 2024. Planes from Balice will take off on Thursdays and Sundays (from April 1 also on Tuesdays). The departure is scheduled for 15:35 to reach Israel after three hours and thirty-five minutes of flight (landing is scheduled for 20:10). Returns are scheduled for 21:05 on the same days. Ticket prices start from PLN 229.99 one way.
We will fly to Israel from other European cities
Krakow is not the only city that will reconnect with Tel Aviv in the summer season. Wizz Air launches regular connections to Israel from another five airports. From March 1, 2024, we will travel to Ben Gurion Airport from Budapest, Bucharest, London, Sofia and Rome. During the escalation of the conflict, the Israeli airport located in the north of the country was particularly vulnerable to attacks. On October 10, a Ryanair plane while trying to land missed a falling rocket and had to return to the airport in Cyprus. After this dangerous incident, subsequent airlines decided to temporarily suspend flights to the country with its capital in Jerusalem.
