Delta Air Lines announced yesterday that it will restart its flights between New York John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion International Airport (TLV) on June 7th. United Airlines has already restarted its flights (more here) and American Airlines says it will return in late October.

Tel Aviv

Daily, nonstop service will be offered on an Airbus A350-900neo with 29 Delta One®, 28 Premium Select, 56 Delta Comfort+, and 168 Economy Class seats.

This is in addition to the strategic partnership that Delta and El Al began on January 1st. Delta offers up to 280 connections from Tel Aviv Ben Gurion Airport (TLV) through its hubs in Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), and New York John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). El Al offers additional nonstop flights from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Miami International Airport (MIA), Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), and New York John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). Both carriers have added their respective codes to the others’ flights.

El Al Plane

Customers connecting onto Delta or EL AL’s flights can check in for their entire journey. This includes having boarding passes issued and bags that are checked through to their final destination. Both airlines offer reciprocal elite benefits like preferred seats, an extra baggage allowance, lounge access, priority check-in, priority boarding, and more. Passengers will also be able to earn and redeem miles on both airlines.

Anthony’s Take: All of the US carriers have been closely monitoring the situation and being able to safely transport passengers has been the priority. United has already restarted its Tel Aviv routes and now Delta will begin again in June.
