Low-cost airline Jet2.com will launch additional flights to Tel Aviv from Manchester next summer.
Its services to the Israeli city from the north-west airport will increase to three times per week, with an extra Tuesday flight operating between July 12th and September 6th 2011.
The additional services come in the wake of "overwhelming" customer demand for the route this summer, with the airline having also recently doubled its frequency to Tel Aviv during the winter.
Philip Meeson, Jet2.com’s boss, said the carrier is "delighted" with the success of its Tel Aviv flights.
"Because of this response, we’re happy to announce that we’re extending our Tel Aviv service to three times a week for the busy summer months giving our passengers more choice and flexibility when they travel" he commented.
The news was welcomed by Andrew Harrison, Manchester Airport’s managing director, who said it is clear that "extra capacity is required".
Last week, Jet2.com confirmed that Glasgow Airport had become its eighth and newest base, from where it will operate services to nine destinations.
