This will be the Ryanair’s third route to and from Germany in addition to its flights from Tel Aviv to Baden-Baden and Memmingen.

Tickets go on sale this week, with fares starting at a launch rate of $22.59 in each direction.

The airline “will pick up some of the demand resulting from the bankruptcy and halting of activities by Germania Airlines, which operated flights between Tel Aviv and several German cities including Berlin,” according to Globes.

Ryanair announced last week the launch of new three weekly flights between Tel Aviv and Athens and Thessaloniki.

Earlier this month the Irish carrier was the first to land flights at Israel’s new Ramon International Airport, on the outskirts of the Red Sea resort city of Eilat.
