Thomson Airways ceases flights to Tel Aviv
3 September 2009
Thomson Airways has confirmed that it will not operate its routes to Tel Aviv from London Luton and Manchester this summer.
The Tel Aviv flight-only route has been popular since its launch in November 2007. However, for summer 2009 Thomson Airways needs to ensure its fleet of aircraft is focused on more traditional holiday destinations. As a result the Tel Aviv routes will be discontinued from May onwards.
An announcement will be made later this year about the winter 2009/2010 operations - and these plans are in the early stages of discussion.
Flights to Tel Aviv for travel until the end of April 2009 are still available to book at thomson.co.uk/flights, with the last flights between both UK airports to Israel flying on Thursday 30 April 2009.
David Burling, Commercial Director, comments: “As a consumer-focused organisation, Thomson Airways constantly reviews its operations and adapts flights accordingly. For summer 2009 we need to prioritise our aircraft to more traditional holiday destinations.
“We would like to thank all those passengers who have travelled with us to Tel Aviv and hope they will continue to enjoy the Thomson Airways service to other destinations.”
