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 Montréal-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."
