(Reuters) - European low-cost airline Ryanair on Thursday said it would resume flights to Tel Aviv from June 3 with 40 weekly flights, following the re-opening of a terminal at Israel's main international gateway.

Ryanair, Europe's largest airline by passenger numbers, reported on Wednesday that it had to cancel almost 950 flights in March due to the Israel-Gaza war.

Ryanair had resumed flights to Tel Aviv in a reduced schedule from February.
