TEL AVIV, Israel, January 27, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EL AL Israel Airlines, Israel’s national carrier, has announced the return of their non-stop service from Boston’s Logan Airport to Ben Gurion in Tel Aviv. EL AL had operated this route from 2015 until mid-2020 when it halted the flight due to Covid-19. With international travel returning, and travel to Israel in great demand, relaunching the Boston route is a priority. This flight will service Boston as well as the entire New England region.
Flights will begin on Sunday, March 27, 2022, and will operate twice weekly, on Sundays and Thursdays from Terminal E at Logan. Prior to the pandemic, EL AL flew thousands of passengers from Boston to Tel Aviv annually.
The route will be operated by EL AL’s new, Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet which has three classes of service: Economy, Premium and Business.
EL AL’s all-new, Boeing 787 Dreamliner features the latest and most modern amenities including Business Class with lie-flat seats, gourmet meals, an extensive choice of wines and beverages, as well as complimentary Wi-Fi for the duration of the flight. EL AL also offers a Premium Class with oversized, comfortable seats with extended legroom and all the amenities of Business Class.
EL AL’s CEO, Avigal Soreq, stated, "We are so excited to return to Boston’s Logan Airport. Our previous Boston flights were very attractive to travelers from across the US and we know this will be very convenient for Bostonians and transiting travelers."
Passengers from outside of the Boston area can benefit from EL AL’s codeshare agreement with JetBlue which allows them to seamlessly travel from many cities such as Baltimore, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Washington to Tel Aviv via Boston, all the while collecting Matmid Frequent Flyer points.
EL AL also offers an interline agreement with American Airlines that allows passengers to schedule flights from across the US to TLV through Boston.
"EL AL has been a great partner to Logan for many years and we are excited that they are relaunching their Tel Aviv - Boston service," said Massport’s Director of Aviation Ed Freni.
Reservations for the Boston to Tel Aviv flights can be purchased at special introductory fares at elal.com and from local travel agents.
