United to Resume Tel Aviv Flights in March

United Airlines plans to resume a daily flight from New York/Newark to Tel Aviv, marking the first step in restoring passenger and cargo service that was suspended in October. The initial Newark-Tel Aviv flights on March 2 and 4 will stop in Munich to ensure all service providers are ready to support non-stop service to and from Newark. No Newark departures to Tel Aviv are planned for March 3 and 5. The airline plans to resume daily nonstop service to Tel Aviv beginning March 6.

United will continue to monitor the situation in Tel Aviv and adjust the schedule as warranted, including changes to the resumed service from New York/Newark. There are plans to resume a second daily Tel Aviv flight from Newark as soon as May as travel demand recovers. Previous routes from San Francisco, Washington Dulles and Chicago O’Hare will be evaluated for resumption beginning in the fall, according to the airline.

In other news, El Al Israel Airlines is expanding its operations and flight schedules in the U.S. in response to increased demand.

Beginning in April, the airline will add two weekly flights from South Florida, bringing the weekly South Florida schedule to seven, with the new flights from El Al’s new Fort Lauderdale gateway. Both Miami International and Fort Lauderdale International offer passengers access to many connections, both domestic and 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. 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. It plans to operate over 50 direct weekly flights to Israel this summer.
