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!

Conclusion

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)

    Hi Yonathan, and thank you for your report.
    I always appreciated this little european airlines (well, not so little now° which is growing and growing up. I didn't know they were operating so many flights from TLV.
    The terminal 1 looks like many secondary airports in Europe like the ones used by Ryanair.

    Great view from the israeli coast.

    See you!
