Irish airline giant Ryanair, the largest carrier in Europe by passenger numbers, has announced its plans to resume flights to and from Tel Aviv starting from February 1st. These flights had been halted since the beginning of October due to the conflict involving Hamas in Israel.

In the initial phase, Ryanair will operate a reduced flight schedule, with routes between Tel Aviv and several European cities, including Marseille in France, Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden and Memmingen in Germany, Milan in Italy, and Vienna in Austria.

Transavia, the low-cost subsidiary of Air France-KLM Group, has also revealed its intention to gradually restart flights between Paris-Orly and Tel Aviv, commencing on February 1st.

Air France had previously announced on January 9th that it would resume its Tel Aviv services, which had been suspended since October 7th.

Starting from January 24th, Air France will operate three weekly flights between Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle and Tel Aviv, albeit with a more reduced schedule compared to its previous services.

Numerous other international airlines had ceased their operations to Israel following the deadly raids and rocket attacks carried out by Hamas from Gaza, particularly affecting the Tel Aviv region.

Since then, Lufthansa has reinstated its flights as of January 8th, and the Greek carrier Aegean has also resumed services to Israel.

This gradual resumption of flights to Israel signifies a positive step toward restoring normalcy in the region, with airlines closely monitoring the security situation to ensure the safety of passengers and crew.
