This is super exciting for me as I live in Haifa. Seems to be a very serious new airline with the former CEO and the former VP of Elal running the show.

Says the first route will be to Romania (I assume Bucharest) and Eilat. The plan is for multiple locations in Europe.

Iím sure Wizz or Ryanair will come in soon enough and offer lower prices, once runway is extended.

Even extended not sure will accommodate their aircraft
From my understanding even extended won't accommodate larger then a-318 at the largest

I guess they just need another ~1,000 sf, but it looks like there are roads perpendicular to both ends of the runway, and buildings not far beyond that.

Interestingly, I tried looking at a street view at one end of the runway, and found this scene. Pretty crazy. Looks like firefighters are still cutting open one car in the shot, if you pan around. Though I wonder if it's a training exercise, based on the tent and the crowd at the end of the runway.

Once the runway is extended, A220 should be able to do it without an issue, possibly even before itís extended with a payload restriction, but that wouldnít be ideal especially for a low cost airline.

Arkia restarted charter service to a bunch of destinations in Cyprus and Greece this summer using I think a dash 90 (30 seats )
Prices for tickets only are $200+ which compared to wizz/ryan air for same destinations is a fortune. Gets a little cheaper if you add on a package deal with hotels.

Sure, but it's not every day you get a nastygram from a company founder.

Back in their LY days they just ignored me.

Are we going to get a juicy post in the Dan's Deals Inbox thread?

They can apologize for the damage they caused.
