Virgin Atlantic pushes back Israel flight restart

Monday, 19 Feb, 2024 0


Virgin Atlantic has extended its suspension of Israel flights until September.

The Heathrow-Tel Aviv route was set restart in late-March.

“Due to the ongoing situation in Israel, we have decided to extend our pause on flying to and from Tel Aviv up to and including 4 September 2024,” the airline said.

“Our flying programme to Israel remains under constant review.”

Cruise brand Virgin Voyages recently announced it would avoid the Red Sea region and instead divert a repositioning cruise back from Australia to Europe via the west coast of Africa.

Rival airline British Airways is resuming Israel flights in April but at a reduced capacity.

BA is now deploying short haul aircraft four times a week.

The Israel flights will include a quick stopover in Cyprus for a crew change.

Passengers will stay onboard during the 45-minute stop
