Wizz Air bemoans Israeli dithering over Tel Aviv base plans

W6: “We've already been holding talks for a long time with the government but we are not really moving forward," he said during a recent function. "Israel is a big and very important market for us, but the logistics are very problematic. The flights come from Central European destinations, which is very far for our sort of operations and so we need to open a base in Tel Aviv.”

I'm not surprised this has been drawn out but it does still seem like a good idea to me. Competition to drive LY to continue improving (I think their 787s is a forward move) and options to smaller markets.
