EL AL ISRAEL AIRLINES has won authorisation from the Israel Ministry of Transportation to operate up to three daily flights from Tel Aviv (TLV) to Eilat (ETH). Eilat Airport is a genuine downtown operation and the decision will provide a tremendous boost to increasing tourism for Israel's Red Sea resort. Whilst El Al has operated from Ben Gurion to Eilat in the past at present only Arkia and Israir offer services from Israel’s international gateway. Flight time is 30 minutes. They also fly from the small Sve Dov airport north of Tel Aviv’s main resort area. The 1900m Eilat runway is sufficient to handle the Boeing 757 and similar size aircraft. El Al plans to start operating these flights from the Spring and plan to include a seemless change for passengers from international fights with immigration and luggage collection both taking place at Eilat. www.elal.co.il
