Bus Subsidies will see worse roads and proposed new airlines to fly from Israel to India and China

Bus and Train Fares cut but resulting in less road improvements

The Prime Minister this week announced that the price of petrol and public transport will fall but Haaretz is now reporting that the Cabinet will be asked to vote on Sunday for the subsidy to cover lower bus and train fares to be covered by reducing the government budget for building and maintaining roads.

New flights to India and China

As tourism between Israel and the Far East increases Ynet reports that the Chinese Hainan Airline is considering introducing direct flights between Ben Gurion Airport and China.  Indian Airlines is also considering introducing direct flights to Ben Gurion Airport.  El Al is currently the only airline to offer direct flights to India and China.  Any new competition should see cheaper flights.
