Turkey and Israel might have chilly relations now, but the country’s national carrier is trying to bring Izmir and Tel Aviv a little closer.

Turkish Airlines announced last week that it is launching a new route connecting Tel Aviv with Izmir, which will begin operating on May 29, on a four-flights-per-week basis.
Located on the country’s Aegean coast, Izmir is Turkey’s third most populous city, after Istanbul and Ankara.
