The Israeli city of Tel Aviv is to be connected to the northwestern Greek city of Ioannina by two weekly flights by Greece’s largest carrier Aegean starting this
May, the state-owned public broadcaster ERT reports.
The route, which is expected to run throughout the summer season until at least October, will fly travelers between the two cities every Wednesday and Saturday, on one of Aegean’s new A320neo aircraft.
“We know that we have high traffic from Israel and we believe that the direct flight will increase the number of visitors. We will do our best to support this project,” Ioannina Mayor Moses Elisaf was quoted saying, also adding that the municipality of Ioannina is also conducting an online campaign to promote tourism in the area.
