Germany's low-cost Germania Airline, which has recently began direct flights to and from Israel, is planning direct flights from Eilat to Düsseldorf.
The airline operates regular twice a week flights between Tel Aviv and Hamburg, in northern Germany, and once a week between Tel Aviv and Baden-Baden/Karlsruhe, in southern Germany’s Black Forest, which has become one of the more popular destinations for Israeli families.
The once a week flights to/ from Düsseldorf are due to begin in October 2015. The flights will land at Ovda airport, 41km north of Eilat.
