After 11 years of absence: El Al will resume flights to Stansted Port in London this June, which may lead to further price reductions • Registration has already opened
El Al will resume flights to Stansted Port London on June 28 after 11 years of absence from the port. It will operate the line five times a week, Sunday through Thursday, on a 737-800 aircraft, thus opening a discounted bus that will compete with Rainair's discount flights to London.
Rainier is active from Standard, but does not operate from this port to Ben Gurion Airport. The line on Flight 213LY will open for two months until September 3, so it will be decided whether to continue operating beyond two months. Flights from Ben Gurion Airport will take off at 16:00 and continue for five hours and 15 minutes. The return flight will take off from London at 20:30 and after four hours and 55 minutes you will land at Ben Gurion Airport at 3:25 am the next day. Already a registration has been opened, at prices from £ 280.
According to Stansted Port Manager Nick Sim, "More than 700,000 passengers fly from our port each year to Tel Aviv, which is a more convenient option for traveling to Israel for residents of North London and East of England."
El Al already operates 11 flights a week to London, to Heathrow Port, where it will deploy Boeing jets, and it also operates three weekly flights to Luton Port. El Al also operates two weekly flights to Manchester in the winter, and three flights a week in the summer. In recent weeks the frequency of flights to Manchester has been reduced once a week.
The lines between London and Ben Gurion are also used by British Airways and Virgin Atlantic companies arriving in Heathrow, while Ezjet and Voyzier arrive at Luton Port. Ezjet also flies to Israel from Gatwick and Standard ports.
