The Belgium low-cost carrier Jetairfly, a subsidiary of German tour operator TUI AG, this week, launched its route between Liege and Tel Aviv.
Jetair, a leading company in the Belgian tourist industry, is TUI's third low-cost carrier that is starting to operate flights to Israel following Thomsonfly, which flies to a number of destinations in the UK and Hapag Fly, flying to destinations across Germany. Jetair representatives in Israel will be Holiday Travel Company.
Moni Bar, Chairman of Holiday Travel in Israel, said, Monday, in a press conference which was gathered to mark the festive inauguration of the aerial route between Israel and Belgium, that unlike other lowcost companies, Jetair will not limit any of its passengers to an inflexible schedule.
"A businessman, who wants to travel to Belgium for only a few days will also be able to enjoy the company's low fairs," Bar said.
