1. Re: New Ryanair flights to Eilat/Ovda announced today

Is the Israeli Government still paying Ryanair a subsidy of 45 Euros to fly passengers to Israel?

"Israel's Ministry of Tourism pushed for Ryanair to fly to Israel and in an exceptional step is paying a €45 subsidy for each tourist that airlines fly to Eilat."

These new flights start in the winter and will be arriving at the new airport just north of Eilat due to open September this year, fingers crossed.

Bluesman you may be right. On the day of the Ryanair press conference, Ynet article said that tickets would go on sale Feb 6 for flights in March-May. Apparently that applies only to Tel Aviv-Paphos, with the rest of the flights coming in the fall. But oddly, Ryanair's announcement specifically referenced Ovda. Perhaps that's because there's no firm date yet for Ramon to open to commercial flights.

I will be happy to see Ramon Airport open and functioning (named in memory of our Israeli pilot/astronaut hero?)- I pass the massive area when I go to Eilat. I wonder if we will see travellers looking for cheap fares travelling there from the center of the country- I certainly would do that.
