I was just wondering how certain airlines and new routes are doing out of TLV. Maybe one of my favorite airports in the area. Does anyone know of the feedback on the TLV-ICN route or routes to the former USSR. Last time i passed through I recall seeing quite a few Russian airlines servicing a number of cities, including carriers like Azerbaijan and Air Zena of Georgia. Thanks so much.

Airlines from the Soviet Union tend to do very good on there routes to TLV,

You must remember Israel is a country of 6 Million population with close to 2 Million ex Soviets.

Georgian carriers tend to do very good as well given the fact that the Israel is home to the largest Georgian population outside of Georiga in the world.

Azerbaijan is the country that imports most of Israel's Oil needs.

I am also interested in finding out how KE is doing on the ICN-TLV route. I haven't heard anything about it since KE launched it. Is it sustainable, or will KE ax it?

Also, how is LY doing on its new TLV-GRU route?

Korean Air Cargo ended freighter service to TLV some months back, now the route is served with 744 Combi, while A332 will be operated in October for a short while, is this the first time A330 is being used there, have they used types on the route like MD11, 777.

Has resurrected KD Avia? Same metal, same owners, same old routes?

It's quite difficult to compare TLV - mainly catering to O&D pax - to most of the other major airports in the region (i.e. CAI, IST, AMM, DXB, AUH, BAH, DOH), which now primarily function as major international transit hubs a la SIN. That would be like trying to compare LAX or JFK - major O&D airports with many small terminals, making arriving and departing easy but connecting a real pain - vs. DEN or ATL - major connecting complexes designed with transit pax in mind, but making it hard on local users.

I know the new US route to PHL just came up in another forum, but as we all know, it is not hard for U.S. carriers to make money serving Israel. While AA would have a heck of a time returning to the country, I still don't know why UA isn't offering IAD-TLV - a capital-to-capital route linking two of the world's closest political allies...

No. They ceased operations last year and directors have been detained for intentional bankruptcy.

Not from VKO, but from KUF

Quoting AirGabon (Reply 5):
Transaero from DME

and from SVO

In addition to AirGabon's list:
FV: from LED (mix of 763 and A320)

SU doesn't fly to TLV, but to VDA

It would be a nice symbolic route, and there are also strong defense and bio-tech links between the DC-region and Israel. But the fact of the matter is that Continental and US operate from two nearby Northeast cities-TLV, plus LH and LX can route passengers from most US cities onto TLV, so there is no rush.

IAD-TLV would fit nicely into United's ~10PM bank from IAD though...

You can certainly still compare airports in the region. Perhaps not due to their roles, but the comparison can be about the efficiency and terminal style. I think T3 is a great and well planned out facility.

3 times a week.

IAD-TLV simply isn't a priority for UA. As RJpieces points out, UA relies on its Star Alliance partner, LH, to provide connections for passengers traveling between IAD and TLV. UA has never indicated that it has ever considered flying to TLV with its own aircraft. This contrasts with CO, which has publicly stated that it may launch IAH-TLV flights when it takes delivery of 787 aircraft and the economy strengthens.

Thanks for the clarification...

Addition to the Air Gabon list:

- Sayakhat Airlines weekly flight from ALA to TLV with TU5 equipment.

Why historically SU doesn't fly from SVO to TLV when UN operates 3 daily flights to TLV (2 from DME and 1 from SVO) and LY a daily flight to DME plus some additional weekly flights with a mix of B744, B772, B767 and B757? In particular as Russia and Israel have now a Visa free policy.

How are the SU load to VDA? Mostly a leisure market when there is an important share of high yield between Moscow and TLV

SU seems only to focus mostly to BEY and Damascus in the region (in addition to CAI, DXB and THR, and the charter services with il96 to HGD and SSH)

A bit out of topic, but the same question: why no SU flights from SVO to Kazakhstan at least to ALA or Astana? With all the business in KZ , KZ being the second CIS largest country and with nearly 45% of Russian origin inhabitants.

The capital of Israel is Jerusalem. That is where the government sits.

For all intents and purposes, since TLV is the only major international airport in the country, IAD-TLV would be considered a capital-to-capital flight. Not to mention that the airport is in between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem....

Strange indeed, I think the bilateral doesn't allow them?

From what i've heard in the rumour-mill pretty good, Israel is very popular among Russians looking for some sun.

It's strange that SU doesn't fly to TLV I could imagine this route being a cash cow. Possibly only one Russian and one Israeli airline are allowed to operate that route?

SU operate a service to VDA (I think that it is three times a week), but no TLV.
