We all want to get to Israel cheaply, so it’s great news that Ryanair has announced its first routes to Israel, for just over £20.

The minor catch, is it’s via three European destinations, none of which are the UK.

For just €29.99 (roughly £21.99) Ryanair will run a route to Israel from Budapest in Hungary, Kaunas in Lithuania and Krakow in Poland.
