Tourism Minister Yariv Levin said in a statement: “I congratulate Wizz Air on its decision to continue expanding operations in Israel and to open three new direct routes into Ben Gurion airport, joining the existing routes. I am pleased that cooperation between the Tourism Ministry and Wizz Air has moved up a level, as the company expresses confidence in the Israeli tourism product and significantly expands its operations in Israel.
“The tourism industry is currently going through a great transformation and the expansion of Wizz Air operation is a testament to the significant improvement in the attractiveness of Israel as a tourism destination. The opening of the new routes, which will bring further increases in incoming tourism, joins the exceptional marketing efforts that we are implementing, efforts that have already led to a 25% increase in incoming tourism this year.”
