Hassan Madah, Director, Israel Ministry of Tourism India & Philippines, said, “In light of the significant increase in incoming tourism from India over the past few years, the Ministry of Tourism has been in talks with Air India and other airlines to increase their flights and seat capacity into Israel. Air India’s direct flight connectivity from New Delhi to Tel Aviv is great news especially with its shorter flight duration and the airline’s strong domestic network within the country. With direct flights now from both Mumbai and New Delhi by El Al and Air India respectively; this will help meet the growing demand and enable us to achieve our target of 1 lakh Indian arrivals in 2018.”

In addition to Air India, Israel’s national carrier El Al currently has four weekly nonstop flights from Mumbai to Tel Aviv and will soon increase its frequency.
