Slovenské aerolínie launches regular flights to Tel Aviv

Slovak airline Slovenské aerolínie (SA) launched regular flights from Bratislava to Tel Aviv, the SITA news wire wrote.

The company's spokesman, Marek Revilak, said that the regular flights are to boost the number of Israeli tourists visiting Slovakia.

SA will operate the flights to Tel Aviv in cooperation with the Israeli airline Israir. Currently, SA operates one Boeing 737-200 airliner.

The new Boeing 737-300 will arrive in Bratislava on April 1 and the SA should get a new Fokker 100 between April and May.

Last year SA transported 233,000 passengers, a substantial increase over the 158,000 passengers of 2002.
