  • Wizz Air on 10 December inaugurated flights to its second destination in Israel – Eilat Ovda (VDA). The ULCC will connect to the airport from its Warsaw Chopin (WAW) base with a twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Saturdays) service. Wizz Air will operate the 2,721-kilometre link on its 180-seat A320s according to OAG schedules. The carrier is already present in Israel, with it linking to Tel Aviv from 10 bases across Europe with a combined total of 29 weekly flights. No other carrier currently links Chopin to Eilat Ovda.

    Great news! The question is whether this will be the first of many routes Wizz will open to Ovda like Ryanair did? There is a huge potential for Eilat with Eastern European winter tourism, and Ryanair have announced that in the next winter season they will have 24 flights a week to Ovda. Will Wizz step up to compete?
