After a 2-year hiatus due to Covid, EL AL relaunched their direct flight route between Boston and Tel Aviv. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Sunday at the Boston Logan International Airport to mark the occasion.
Remarks were shared by Meron Reuben, Consul General of Israel to New England, Todd Smith, Massport Director of Aviation Operations, Mark Sullivan, Executive Director MA Office of International Trade and Investment, and Marc Cavaliere, Senior VP of the Americans El Al Israel Airlines.
Following the ceremony, Rabbi Yossi Rapp of Chabad Air assisted in putting up mezuzahs on the doors of the operations and security offices.
Flights will leave from Boston twice weekly, on Sundays and Thursdays. The route will be operated by EL AL’s new, Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet.
EL AL had operated this route from 2015 until mid-2020 when it halted the flight due to Covid-19. With international travel returning, and travel to Israel in great demand, they have now relaunched the Boston route.
