Resumption of Passenger Movements
The airline said that it will resume passenger flights to Athens from Tel Aviv on 1st October. El Al will also resume flights on its key routes to London, Paris and New York from 12th October. El Al has said it will deploy Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft on these routes.
The Israeli airline will also begin cargo flights from Ben Gurion airport to Hong Kong, Shanghai, Mumbai and other destinations later this month as per need.
Via a statement in a company press release, the Israeli airline said:
