El Al expansion continues

Two new non-stop European destinations, to Dublin from 26 May next year and Dusseldorf from 1 June, were announced by El Al last week. The airline has also put tickets on sale for its new non-stop Tel Aviv – Tokyo route, which begins on 11 March.

El Al will offer three weekly non-stop flights to Dublin on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday and to Dusseldorf on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The flights will operate on Boeing B737s with Economy and Business service classes.

The new Tokyo service will also be three times weekly on the airline’s new Boeing B787 Dreamliners. Flights will depart Tel Aviv on Saturdays, Mondays and Wednesdays and Tokyo on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Dusseldorf joins Frankfurt, Munich and Berlin on the El Al map, extending the range of operations to Germany to 36 weekly flights from next June.

Vice-president commercial and industry affairs Michael Strassburger said: “We are working continually to expand the airline’s route network. Dublin is an activity base for hi-tech companies and Dusseldorf regularly hosts many international congresses and fairs.

“The decision to fly to Tokyo was also taken following increasing demand and particularly next year with the Olympic Games is expected to increase traffic and significantly strengthen economic and political ties between Israel and Japan.”
