Wizz Air operation in Israel:
Wizz Air started its operation in 2012 when they launched the first route: Budapest - Tel Aviv. The airline continued to grow up and launching direct and cheap flights to cities in Eastern Europe & Luton. From October 2015 the airline offers flights from Ovda Airport (near Eilat) to Bucharest, Warsaw, Katowice, Riga, and Prague. Those routes used to be for European tourists in the winter.
Wizz Air has 17 routes from Tel Aviv from that destinations: Prague, Lublin, Warsaw, Katowice, Vilnius, Riga, Kosice, London - Luton, Budapest, Debrecen, Sofia, Varna, Bucharest, Timisoara, Craiova, Cluj Napoca and Iasi.
and 5 routes from Eilat - Ovda from that destinations: Warsaw, Katowice, Prague, Riga, and Bucharest.
Since June 2017, all the flights of UP (by El Al), Ryanair, EasyJet, Wizz Air and some flights of Pegasus Airlines depart including passport control from Terminal 1 which was the oldest terminal until terminal 3 was opened in 2004.
This is the entrance to Terminal 1:
It seems to be a busy day today for Wizz Air in Terminal 1: They will operate 9 flight on this day! (Flights will operate today to Sofia, Craiova, Bucharest, Budapest, Riga, Prague, Varna, Warsaw and Lublin).
The Check-In hall was busy:
My flight had a delay:
The airside of Terminal 1: It is a pretty crowded hall with enough duty-free shops but only one cafe! It's isn't enough for many hungry travelers!
Many flights today!

Our plane seen from the bus that took us to the terminal:
Tel Aviv - TLV
Prague - PRG
I really enjoyed my flight with WizzAir. The plane was new, clean from inside, however that tray table is very small and there isn't a big pocket for the stuff. Terminal 1 in TLV must have more resturants for its customers. The flight departed with a delay of one hour but we landed only 30 minutes after our scheldue time. The cabin crew was nice, nothing special. The arrival journey in PRG was quickly.
I'm sure that will fly again with WizzAir, they are a good airline with new fleet and many destinations from Israel. Also TLV-PRG sector cost me 59$ in the high season (I booked the ticket just 5 days before the flight)
