Canadian passport holders do not need a visa if they are travelling to the country for tourism purposes only, and their stay is shorter than 90 days. Your passport should be valid for at least 6 months beyond the date of your departure from Israel. However, if you are a Canadian citizen with a Palestinian background or a Palestinian name, be aware that you might be denied entry into the country.
The national carriers Air Canada and El Al offer nonstop flights to Israel from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Montreal-Pierre Trudeau International Airport (YUL). Both airlines fly to Ben Gurion Airport which is the main international airport of Israel, located approximately 20 km from Tel Aviv and 45 km from Jerusalem. If you are flying from another Canadian airport, you may find that most cheap flights are with European airlines and include a layover at a major European airport.
The easiest and fastest way to reach the West Bank is by flying into Israel's Ben Gurion Airport. From there, it takes approximately 1h to get to Jerusalem or the Qalandia checkpoint by bus or car. From Jerusalem, you can travel onward to cities such as Bethlehem or Jericho. If you prefer to fly into Queen Alia International Airport (AMM) in Amman, Jordan, you can get to the Allenby/King Hussein Bridge border crossing by car or by taxi.
If you are planning to explore the northern region of Israel, including the Sea of Galilee and the city of Nazareth, consider flying into Haifa International Airport (HFA). You can catch a flight from Dov Hoz Airport (SDV), Tel Aviv's domestic airport, or from Ramon-Eilat Airport (ETM).

We entered the plane last.Our seats not were ready and we were forced to do it all alone.Rudeness and unprofessionalism of SWISS crew.The end of the vacation was spoiled. For what I paid to SWISS 100$ in advance(10 monthes)? I believe, if SWISS could not provide the paid service as expected, SWISS must return the money(100$) and apologize. Nobody apologized in Zurich, threatened to invite the police. Bad crew, bad service."

I was with 3 pieces but we were 3 persons my wife and my Childe . I was trying to explain her, but she was unable to listen .

Pros: "At Montreal I was made to go through the customs, exit the airport, get the boarding pass, go through security check again. I was subjected to unnecessary hassle as Air Canada did not issue me boarding pass for the section of Motreal to Zurich at Los Angeles airport. Had I known that I have to come out of the airport, I would not have bought this ticket.

Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Cons: "At boarding they went in two stages. First stage they called people to board by category first people that needed more time then families with small children etc. HOWEVER, the put all of us in an intermediate room and the door to the gate was closed. They passed everyone so when the gate door opened everyone were trying to get to the gate and there was no order. That was stupid to say the least. Turkish could have waited the couple of minutes needed to get the gate open!!! and save the hassle!"

Cons: "Flight was three hours late."
Pros: "Flight was only 15 minutes late"
Cons: "Food and drink (esp. non-alcoholic) is terrible. Not offering a vegetarian option - even on short haul - is ridiculous in the 21st century."
Pros: "food and comfort was okay.."
Cons: "Outbound flight - Miami check -in personal was extremely unfriendly for no reason - got charged $160 - although have not received an upgrade - the connection flight had 3h delay- resulted and 8h waiting time at the Lisbon airport after an already 10h flight"
Pros: "There was nothing to like about this flight!"
Cons: "The seats were the most uncomfortable I have ever experienced. There was no leg room. My knees were in the back of the seat in front of me abd I could not move. Unless you are way below average height, don’t take this airline."
Cons: "The fact that the airline only gave us a 18Euro voucher good enough for one meal. A thievery."
Pros: "I liked the foot rests and leg room. The gluten-free meal was wonderful."
Cons: "Although I had a delicious gluten-free dinner roll with the main meal, I was served a soggy rice cracker for breakfast. Why not another roll?"
Pros: "Flight was on time and landed early. We got small samdwiches with a snack and juice."
Pros: "Lots of legroom. On board crew was good."
Cons: "Check-in was a little bit chaotic."
Cons: "1) I tried several times while traveling but was unable to figure out how to choose a vegetarian option for the flight. When I called customer service, after a long hold time, the woman I finally spoke to told me it was too late to order vegetarian and refused to help me. I have never flown another airline (Air India, Turkish Air, United, American, China Southern, etc., etc.) that did not make this easy to choose during booking or check-in and that did not already have a standard ovo-lacto vegetarian option on the regular menu. Vegetarians practice for all sorts of reasons, including religion and health needs. It's unacceptable to make it so difficult to meet your meal needs while trapped on a plane for nine hours. 2) The check-in agent did not know the rule about all remaining seats being opened for passenger choice three hours before booking and insisted we had to pay to get aisle seats despite one of us having a health problem necessitating her standing up and walking every 45 minutes. Then another agent told us we couldn't choose seats for free for our Porto to Newark flight when we check in for our Madrid-Porto flight because it wasn't technically three hours before the Porto-Newark departure. But how were we supposed to choose seats for the Porto-Newark flight three hours in advance if we are in an airplane flying to Porto at that time? This makes no sense. Seats should be opened for every leg of a same-day journey at the same time. The agents were unhelpful and unsympathetic. 3) This was an old plane without options to choose a film or show to watch. Instead, passengers could flip through a few channels and hope to find something of interest that was already playing -- there was no way to begin a film or show from the beginning if you landed on it in the middle of its running time. I cannot recommend TAP Portugal to any of my friends, family, or colleagues after this experience."
Pros: "Crew on board efficient and polite. In flight entertainment on a rolling programme of videos played an an user-friendly player and all in 2 languages. Meols - two of them- stable and standard airline fare served quickly and efficiently by crew. Comfy seat with recline and tilt. Blankets and pillows provided as standard."
Cons: "The wait for check in was almost an hour longer tha. Expected and nowhere comfortable to wait. Executive lounge overpriced and meagre without any reclining seats. May as well have saved the money and used the terminal facilities No in flight magazine available to my seat for on board purchases and very little choice off goods on offer."
Pros: "All flights have been on time. Seats and entertainment system are acceptable"
Cons: "Apart from the unorganized immigration and check-in process the service is very average. On both transatlantic flights the toilets did not work properly. Furthermore the business practice to charge you for any luggage $ 90 at airport without prior notice during the booking process is quite unpleasant and uncommon for transatlantic flights. Would be good that airline as well as internet travel agent would advice about this additional costs in a more transparent way before you purchase the ticket"
Pros: "Seats are ok and good entertainment system"
Cons: "The attitude of the hostist and the way they dont give you food choices and don't even explain or say what food they are giving you. When i ask whats in this they gave me a look and a weird attitude"
Pros: "Plane and comfort"
Cons: "Food and entertainment needs to be better. The transfer over to cologne from Portugal was a bit hectic due to customs and we just made it in time for our flight. Need a better system to verify the passports."
Pros: "staff was fine. Food was kind of tasty."
Cons: "seats were quite small. no onboard entertainment."
Pros: "The food in Economy was way better than usual U.S. airline food. Ground staff in Newark were helpful in retrieving a book I left on the plane. Captain had the seat belt sign off early and turned it back on late in descent which allowed people to visit the restrooms. Video entertainment was good."
Cons: "Captain should have made more P.A. announcements during the coast in over Cape Cod to point out areas of interest"
Pros: "Timeliness of check-in and the flight."
Cons: "Some not so friendly crew members on this flight. There was one tall, blonde flight attendant who wore so much perfume that I could taste it every time she walked down the aisle. You can't have that in an enclosed space. In this day and age of so many people having food allergies to nuts, why would you serve a dessert with almonds?? My daughter almost ate it because there was no warning label. It scares me to think what might have happened at 12,000 feet."
Cons: "easy flight,"
Cons: "Having to wait 3 hours in Lisbon airport after airline failed to hold our ny flight leg. Needed to stay overnight and be rebooked. Customer service lines in Lisbon worst I have seen in over 30 years of flying"
Pros: "The plane was newer and clean. The flight left and arrived on time."
Cons: "On a non- stop flight from Madrid to Portugal which I checked in 2 hours early for my bags and those of 15 other people were LOST.I did not receive my bag for 28 hours! They only deliver once a day. Additionally, they charge extra for everything you can imagine. Any weight over their limit is 105 euros."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "I enjoyed flying with tap"
Pros: "Free blanket, pillow, headphones, and wine! Flight was on time, no one weighed or measured carry on bags."
Cons: "Tight seats for an international flight!"
Pros: "Low cost"
Cons: "Kept switching gates"
Cons: "Missed that flight because of previous delay"
Pros: "Smooth landing"
Cons: "A few bumpy moments in the air!"
Cons: "bad checkin. just trying to get more money for baggage.."
Pros: "I gave up fighting with you and TAP to recover this error that was made a moment after I booked thinking it was to Brussels. I will think twice before ever giving Kayak or tap my business and blog you both to Facebook."
Cons: "The fact that it is impossible to speak to a human to correct this mistake"
Pros: "Easy checking and boarding process"
Pros: "My flight between Lisbon and New York was very comfortable. I've been flying mostly emirates lately, which is fantastic, so I didn't have high hopes but was pleasantly surprised! The food was good and the seats were very nice with plenty of leg room. I was also happy with the entertainment selection."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "One of my luggage was missing."
