Direct flight Lviv-Tel Aviv-Lviv will be extended for winter period

“Direct flight Lviv-Tel Aviv-Lviv will be extended for winter period”, Ukraine International Airlines informed the Honorary Consulate of the State of Israel in Western region of Ukraine. In particular, the UIA announced that it is planned to leave two flights per week between Lviv and Tel Aviv as it was in summer.

According to Oleg Vyshniakov, the Honorary Consul of the State of Israel in Western region of Ukraine, such decision may be indicative of the tourist flow increase between Israel and Ukraine. “If airline company prolongs for winter period the flight that was initially launched for summertime only, it means that there are good prospects for the development of this direction”, Mr. Vyshniakov mentioned.

Oleg Vyshniakov considers that attraction of Israeli tourists to Western Ukraine will promote the development of tourism industry. “Israelis like to travel a lot as well as they enjoy discovering new places for visiting. Lviv, Lviv region and other western regions are really very attractive for tourists. In Lviv there are a lot of historical and spiritual locations that can be interesting for Israeli travellers. Western regions of the country have great recreational potential, too,” the Honorary Consul noted and also added, “Currently, together with tour operators from Ukraine and Israel the issue of organization of recreational tours to Truskavets, Svaliava and Morshyn for Israeli tourists is being discussed.”

Since May 20, 2015 Ukrainian International Airlines has launched regular direct flight Lviv- Tel Aviv- Lviv. It is performed twice a week from Danylo Halytskyi International Airport “Lviv”.
