The Transportation Ministry announced Sunday that it anticipated a 13 percent increase in foreign airlines' flights into and out of Israel in the upcoming months.

According to the Ministry, the Civil Aviation Authority granted permission for a total of 53 foreign carriers to operate regular passenger flights in and out of the country in the 2010-2011 winter season, enabling a total of 370 weekly flights.
