EasyJet commercial manager Neil Slaven, said, "Having started the low fares revolution in Israel, back in November 2009, we are delighted to hear we have become the largest foreign airline serving Israel. We have grown significantly over the course of the last seven years and now offer nine routes to and from the country.
