Hungary-based airline Wizz Air said on Thursday that it was launching a new route from Tel Aviv to Mykonos, one of Greece’s most popular island holiday destinations.
The route will be launched on June 11, with two weekly flights on Monday and Friday. Tickets are available for sale on the airline’s website and mobile app, with fares starting at NIS 199.
The new route with Wizz Air’s low fares will allow Israeli passengers to travel during the summer vacation and the September holiday period to the island of entertainment, history and landscapes.
“We have made the decision to expand our summer operations to Greece, by adding yet another picturesque destination for an Israeli tourist, Mykonos. With breathtaking beaches, boutique shopping and some of the best Greek restaurants and bars, Mykonos is one of Europe’s hottest islands,” said Paulina Gosk, Corporate Communications Manager at Wizz Air.
“We are thrilled to have secured this destination for Israeli tourists and we see this as an opportunity for them to explore the Cyclades as a form of long-awaited holiday.”
The company said that due to the pandemic, customers can change their flight plans anytime, even up to three hours before departure.
Wizz Air said it takes numerous safety measures to increase hygiene such as requiring cabin crew and passengers to wear facemasks, and cabin crew to wear gloves. Passengers are asked to follow physical distancing measures and on-board purchases are encouraged to be made through contactless payment or on line before the flight, the company said.
