The launch of nonstop service to San Francisco is a strategic step for the continued expansion of EL AL’s route network in North America.
The new route will be launched in Q4 2018, with 3 weekly nonstop flights on the new Dreamliner aircraft.
San Francisco will become EL AL’s sixth destination in North America, alongside New York (JFK and Newark), Los Angeles, Boston, Miami and Toronto.
David Maimon, President & CEO of EL AL said:
“San Francisco is the third destination to be launched since we announced the expansion of the North American route network in 2015 with Boston, followed by Miami in November 2017. The acquisition of the 787 Dreamliner fleet enables us to expand our long-haul network. San Francisco is a city of strategic importance to EL AL, with great emphasis on the business market. With the launch of EL AL’s nonstop flights, passengers will enjoy a variety of options to reach their destination at competitive prices, allowing greater connectivity throughout North America.”
