Tel Aviv is set to become Swiss Airlines' second most heavily trafficked destination outside Europe. The airline announced plans Sunday to expand its carrying capacity to Ben-Gurion Airport by 22 percent, devoting two wide-body Airbus 340 jets (pictured above) to deliver passengers to Israel starting in February. Together, the airline's two daily round-trips between Zurich and Tel Aviv will contain space for more passengers than to any non-European destination the airline serves after New York. Swiss currently operates the route with an A-340 for its morning flight to Tel Aviv and a smaller Airbus 320 for night flights. The airline, which attributes the changes to its Tel Aviv line to growing demand from business and pleasure travelers, is currently expanding its fleet with 19 Airbus jets, acquisitions at a cost of €700 million.
