In early June, Ryanair to resume its flights to Israel from Budapest

According to a statement from Ryanair, starting from the beginning of June, a total of 40 weekly flights will operate to Israel from several of its European bases, including Athens, Bari, Berlin, Budapest, Malta, Milan, and Paphos.

The airline’s flights will fly from Budapest to Tel Aviv five times a week from June 4th, excluding Mondays and Sundays, on the remaining days of the week.
Similar to several other airlines, Ryanair suspended its flights to Israel following the rocket attacks in October 2023 and the subsequent outbreak of war.

The company resumed some of its flights to Tel Aviv in February, but due to the closure of the low-cost Terminal 1 at Ben Gurion Airport, it could only use Terminal 3, which incurred higher costs. The airline temporarily requested a reduction in fees, but this was denied by the operator, leading Ryanair to suspend the flights again a few weeks later until the reopening of Terminal 1 in June – Flightglobal recalled in its article.

As previously reported, Wizz Air restarted its flights to Tel Aviv in early March, which operate from Budapest three times a week, on Mondays, Fridays, and Sundays.
