TNT launches flights to Tel Aviv


TNT announced that it has launched a five-time weekly service between Tel Aviv, Israel, and its hub in Liege, Belgium. Starting this month, the route is flown every weekday with a Boeing 737-400.

The new freighter service answers increasing demand and will offer customers fixed departure times, guaranteed uplift, later pick-up times in Israel and a smooth connection to TNT’s international road and air networks via Liege. It also allows TNT to shorten transit times for express shipments to and from Tel Aviv by one day.

The flight from Liege arrives in Tel Aviv in the morning for same day deliveries and departs in the evening, allowing for close of business pick up and same day export.

Martin Sodergard, Managing Director Network Operations TNT said, “With this flight operated by TNT, our customers will benefit from improved delivery reliability, as well as later cut-off times for pickups thanks to improved departure times. It also gives us additional capacity to further grow our business in and out of Israel.”

According to TNT the EU is the first trading partner for Israel with total trade amounting to approximately €29bn in 2013. Typical TNT shipments to and from the country include machinery, electronic products, medical equipment and textiles.
