I was looking at pictures taken at TLV, It seems like more and more airlines send widebodies to TLV, even if it is seasonal:

- KL now sends 772s for S11
- LH with a mix of 744s and A343/346/333s
- IB with some A343s with narrowbodies
- TK with some A343s and A332s/A333s, plus narrowbodies
- ET with 763s and even 77Ls!
- BA with a mix of 763s/772s
- OS with 763s, plus narrowbodies
- LX with A332s (soon A343s)
- SN sometimes sending A332s
- VV with 763s
- SU with IL96s, 763s (plus narrowbodies)

plus charters (Thomas Cook with 763s, XL Airways with A332s)
and of course North American airlines, but this is obvious

Yup, the market has grown a lot. Most European airlines do a healthy connecting business to TLV, so not surprising to see so many widebodies on these routes.

Big connecting market, and a big local market too - I read somewhere that Israelis spend more of a percentage of income on travel on average than any other developed country...also, from Europe there's a good amount of IT business.

ET with 763s and even 77Ls!

ET has a huge share in the Israel-Africa market, and then there's the Ethiopian community in Israel. I don't know how many have ties still back in Ethiopia since most of the community moved to Israel. I do know that ET's generally the choice when going to Sub-Saharan Africa - my relatives in Israel have taken them a few times down to SA via ADD.

- BA with a mix of 763s/772s

BA's been using widebodies on that market for a very long time-they used to have much more of the transatlantic market from Israel than they do now, but they still make a healthy amount off it. BA does very well with the Orthodox market.

I didn't mention them because KE sending a widebody is obvious given the distance between South Korea and Israel

AC sends their 763s from YYZ. I think they also stuck in a 77L now and then.

Support the beer and soda can industry, recycle old airplanes!

Don't forget RO sends its A310 to TLV daily. Quite a rare sight, no doubt.

I believe LH is the 2nd largest carrier at TLV in terms of pax carried.
