Air Transat suspends Israel service for 2019

Air Transat has just announced that its Israel offering, launched in the summer of 2017, will not be renewed for the 2019 season.

Air Transat was the first to launch a MontrĂ©al-Tel Aviv direct flight, inaugurated on June 18, 2017. Service was also available from Toronto through connecting flights.

For the inaugural season, in 2017, the service was offered twice a week. It had been increased to three flights a week in 2018.

Shortly after announcing the launch of this new Air Transat service, Air Canada also announced a new seasonal direct service to Tel Aviv International Airport. 

"We are re-evaluating all of our routes each season based on a variety of factors, including supply and demand," Marie-Annick Laland, public relations and marketing consultant, Transat, told PAX. "This year, we have decided to suspend our flights to Tel Aviv for the summer of 2019. Customers who have a reservation are invited to contact our customer service."
