Israir to operate Israel-Sri Lanka flights

Tel Aviv: Israir, an Israeli airline headquartered in Tel Aviv has applied to the Israeli Ministry of Transport’s Civil Aviation Authority to operate direct charter flights between Israel and Sri Lanka, “Globes”, an Israeli business newspaper reported.

According to the Globes report, Israir CEO Uri Sirkis, who returned from a visit to Sri Lanka, will meet with Sri Lanka’s Ambassador to Israel on the subject. There are currently no direct flights between Israel and Sri Lanka.

Israir’s VP marketing and sales Gil Stav has confirmed to “Globes” that, “We are indeed preparing to operate direct flights to Sri Lanka in the summer and during the holidays, in the first stage.” He added, “This is a destination that fits in with the series of family products that Israir offers to Western Europe, the Seychelles, and Zanzibar in Africa.”

Israir is yet to market packages for flights to Sri Lanka but Stav estimates that packages for a week in Sri Lanka will cost $1,500-2,000 per person.
