Hainan Airlines closes Guangzhou-TLV route

https://www.ynet.co.il/articles/0,73...443666,00.html

Closing Guangzhou-TLV route as of Feb 20. BUT they are opening a new route to Shenzhen on Feb 22.
However it seems that China Southern may start flying on the route from Guangzhou instead.
There was however a drop in Chinese tourists coming to Israel in 2018 (down by 8%) which is part of the cause of cancelling the Guangzhou line on Hainan.

Shenzhen makes more sense given the tech angle

Israeli authorities to offer charge exemptions at Timna, Haifa:

https://centreforaviation.com/news/m...airport-870160

They've been talking about extending Haifa's runway to 1500-1600 meters for over 10 years. What is the latest on that? It's 1318m now. Adding less than 200 meters should not be difficult, even if they have to move a road. Who knows if they will ever turn that northern airbase into a second major international airport? Until that happens, it would be nice to have a Haifa Airport that could relieve some of the pressure from TLV.

Maybe they can get some ATR 72 flights out of Haifa now? Eilat, Larnaca, maybe even Paphos, Antalya and Rhodes in summer?

Indeed.
Truth is, it's a shame that nobody is really operating the Q400 in that region, well besides Olympic.
The Q would be better suited for those routes to Greek Islands and secondary Turkey.

Oh well.

Tus Airways used to fly these routes for a short while. I wish they'd return.
