Today, EL AL Israel Airlines has opened bookings for the only nonstop service between Bostonâ€™s Logan International Airport and Israelâ€™s Ben Gurion International Airport. Launching June 28, 2015, the flight schedule will include three weekly nonstop flights (every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday evening) on a Boeing 767-300 aircraft, conveniently departing Logan International Airport at 9 p.m. and arriving the following day at Ben Gurion International at 3:05 p.m. in the afternoon. The return nonstop flights will also depart Ben Gurion every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 12:30 am and arrive in Boston the same day at 5:45 a.m.
The 767 aircraft will be configured with 218 seats, including 22 bed-like seats in Business Class and 28 in Economy Class Plus, an affordable class of service offering great value, extra legroom and additional seat recline, a curtain for privacy and more.
All passengers will enjoy a selection of movies, Israeli TV programs, childrenâ€™s world, games, music and more on an in-flight entertainment system that is based on advanced streaming technology using their own personal device.
EL AL President David Maimon states, â€œEL AL sees strategic value in reinforcing its activities in North America. The airline aims to expand and increase its routes between Israel and North America, meeting the demands and needs of the important business community, as well as promote tourism. With the opening of this new nonstop route, it is expected that the New England region will become a popular vacation destination for Israelis. For Americans living in this area, it will be easier and more popular to travel to Israel.â€
In addition, a new EL AL/JetBlue codeshare agreement provides convenient connections and savings for passengers living in many cities in the USA. EL AL Vice President, North and Central America, Shmuel Kuzi states, â€œWe are pleased to offer more flight options to EL AL passengers living in or near Boston, and those from many other cities in the USA who will conveniently connect to the new nonstop flights to and from Israel via any JetBlue codeshare city.â€
As the national airline, only EL AL provides an Israeli experience, offering warm hospitality, native flight attendants who make you feel at home and the best trained Israeli pilots. Freshly prepared Kosher meals with an Israeli flavor and a selection of award-winning Israeli wine is served in all classes of service.
The new weekly Boston flights are in addition to the 34 weekly nonstop flights, which will take off this upcoming summer between North America (New York-JFK/Newark, Los Angeles and Toronto) and Israel.
Boston Logan International Airport is located 10 minutes from downtown Boston and serves as the gateway to the New England region. The airport is also 30 minutes from the main intersection of Route 128 and I-90.
