EL AL Israel Airlines Expanding US Routes to Israel

(Courtesy of EL AL) In response to increased demand, EL AL is expanding its operations and flight schedules in the US, just in time for Passover and the summer travel season.

Beginning in April, EL AL will be adding two weekly flights from South Florida, bringing the weekly South Florida schedule to seven, with the additional flights from EL AL’s new Fort Lauderdale gateway. Both Miami International and Fort Lauderdale International offer passengers access to many connections, domestic as well as international, especially with the new Delta Air Lines codeshare.

Starting in June, EL AL will add two weekly flights from Los Angeles, supplementing its existing daily flight. The additional flights on Mondays and Wednesdays will bring the total weekly flights on the route to eight, making LAX a pivotal gateway from West Coast cities including Las Vegas, San Francisco, Seattle, San Diego, Dallas, Phoenix and more.

Moreover, EL AL will add a new weekly flight on the Boston-Tel Aviv route, which will now operate four times a week on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays throughout the summer schedule. Boston, recognized for its economic and cultural significance, boasts renowned museums, universities, and vibrant Israeli and Jewish communities. With Boston Logan Airport serving as a hub for connections in the Americas, EL AL’s collaboration with Delta, JetBlue, and other partner airlines ensures convenient connecting travel options.

The company continues to add flights from New York and Newark, increasing capacity for the summer season.

With plans to operate over 50 direct weekly flights to Israel this summer, EL AL’s expanded route network is made possible by the optimization of its Dreamliner aircrafts’ schedules and changes to the rest of its international routes. These moves align with EL AL’s strategic growth plans.

“Since October 7, EL AL has strategically adjusted its US flight schedule to uphold an air bridge which is vital for the State of Israel. As we enter the summer season, our commitment to US expansion remains resolute,” says Shlomi Zafarani, VP of EL AL Commercial and Aviation Relations.
