El Al is the flag carrier of Israel. Founded in 1948, it serves both domestic and international routes. It has played a significant role in connecting Israel to the rest of the world and will soon offer nonstop service to Fort Lauderdale.
Dan’s Deals is reporting that EL AL will begin adding 2x weekly flights between Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport (TLV) and Fort Lauderdale International Airport (FLL). This is in addition to EL AL’s service to Miami International Airport (MIA). The flights will be operated by a Boeing 787-8, which features 20 Business Class seats, 35 in Premium Economy, and 183 in Economy.
The additional capacity in South Florida will be welcomed by many as American Airlines launched flights between its hub at Miami International Airport (MIA) and Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport (TLV) in June 2021 and cancelled the route in March 2023.
It will be interesting to see if Delta Air Lines codeshares these new flights as it continues to develop its relationship there. EL AL might also join SkyTeam in the near future, but details have been scarce.
Anthony’s Take: EL AL seems to be growing with new US flights and some new aircraft. We’ll see about its future in SkyTeam and how these Fort Lauderdale flights do financially for the carrier.
