Irish low-cost airline Ryaniar's CEO Michael O'Leary arrived in Israel on Tuesday and was interviewed by Channel 13 news.

"The sooner terminal 1 opens, the faster our growth in Israel would be," O'Leary said. "We can bring millions more to Israel, we will grow as fast as the authorities allow us to"

O'Leary also promised that Ryanair "can offer over 200 new airports and destinations" to the Israelis. He also promised that "both Israelis and tourists will enjoy the company's low prices."

Ryanair signed a partnership with Air Europa last September offering Israelis more destinations and flight routes.
