The skies between Israel and England got busier Thursday, with British airline Thomson Fly completing its maiden flights in each direction. The carrier, which advertises one-way flights beginning at $99, will offer a total of six flights each week between Tel Aviv and England, with flights to Israel taking off from both Manchester's international airport and from Luton Airport, located 30 miles from central London. Thomson Fly will operate Boeing 737s and 757s on its newest route, offering seats for up to 200 passengers per trip. An additional English carrier, BMI, has announced plans to start flights to Israel next summer.
