Talks have taken place between the Israeli transport minister and representatives of both easyJet and bmi about the possibility of new flights between the UK and Israel.

According to TheMarker newspaper, Israeli Transport Minister Gideon Siterman has been in discussions with both airlines in an attempt to arrange a deal.

Although nothing has been agreed, both airlines appear keen to talk to the minister, and if the flights get the go ahead both easyJet and bmi would be pitched against British Airways.

Last year the Israeli Tourism Minister said that he hoped to see a low-cost operator offer flights from UK airports, and mentioned that he had held discussions with both easyJet and Ryanair.
