Košice airport already offered flights to Tel Aviv back in the 1990s, operated by the now-defunct Air Slovakia. It was used mostly by Slovak pilgrims to the Holy Land, and also Israeli patients travelling to Bardejovské Kúpele spa, as well as Israelis coming from eastern Slovakia and southern and south-eastern Poland, Trend reported.

There is quite an interest in flights between Slovakia and Israel. Czech airline, SmartWings, operates the flights to the country from Bratislava between April and October, while Israeli company, Sun D’Or, offers charter flights from Poprad between June and October once a week.

Moreover, during the winter season, there will be flights from Bratislava to Eilat/Ovda in southern Israel twice a week, Trend wrote.
