How often are you going to find round-trip flights to Tel Aviv (TLV) for under $405 round-trip? Almost never, which is why we’ve picked up this deal for you from Norse Atlantic. It’s not luxurious, but it’ll get you from A to B with a whole lot of cash left in your pocket.
Fare Deal — Details
Norse Atlantic is a low-cost carrier that’s been filling the gaps that Norwegian Air and Wow Air left behind when they dissolved. Featuring ultra-cheap flights from the U.S. to Europe, these can be paired with other low-cost carriers to make an absolutely insane deal on flights to Israel.
- Class: Economy
- Routes: New York (JFK) to Tel Aviv (TLV)
- Dates: September 2023 to December 2023
- Rates: From $402 round-trip
The absolute cheapest rates are as low as $402 round-trip, though to get this kind of deal, you’ll be spending a lot of time in layovers.
You’ll also need to change airports in London, since Wizz Air flies into London Luton (LTN) and Norse Atlantic flies into London Gatwick (LGW).
If this doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, you can opt to pay a bit more to significantly shorten those flight times and avoid changing airports.
$616 is still far less than the average cost of this route, which usually hovers in the ~$1,100 range.
Note that all of these carriers are low-cost, which means you’ll need to pay extra for most things. Also, while a personal item is included, checked baggage and carry-on bags are not. You’ll also need to pay more for an assigned seat, plus food and drinks.
Best Ways To Book
There are 2 different ways you can go about booking these flights. The first is through an online travel agency (OTA), which will allow you to book these 2 separate tickets in a single go (though they’re still considered separate bookings in the eyes of the airlines). This can make it easier to manage your itinerary, though it can be frustrating to deal with an OTA if you need to change or cancel your flights.
If this is what you choose, we recommend using a card such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve® to pay, since it’ll earn you 3x Ultimate Rewards on all travel purchases and offers excellent travel insurance.
You can also choose to book these flights individually via each airline’s website. This allows you to earn the 5x Membership Rewards that The Platinum Card® from American Express offers on flights booked directly with the airline (up to $500,000 per year, then 1x).Hot Tip:

For people who want to go to Israel before the end of 2023, this is a crazy good deal. Even though the trips won’t be the most comfortable, this is one of the cheapest prices we’ve seen to Israel, and it may be worth it if you just want to get from A to B.
