EL AL to launch flights to Tokyo E-mail

El Al Israel Airlines Ltd recently announced that it will begin operating Tel-Aviv – Tokyo flights. The thrice-weekly flights will start from March 2020.

These will be the first direct scheduled flights between Israel and Japan, although El Al’s seasonal and chartered services unit, Sun D’Or, will begin operating charter services for the Fly East Travel Company from September 2019.

At present, Israeli passengers flying to Japan must take connection flights. Flight time between Tel-Aviv and Tokyo’s Narita airport will be 11 hours and 15 minutes, with the return journey taking 12 hours 30 minutes.

Demand among Israelis for Japan, as both a vacation and business destination, has grown exponentially in recent years; 40,000 Israelis visited Japan in 2018, while 20,000 Japanese came to Israel. The numbers of Israelis visiting Japan is likely to increase significantly next year with Tokyo hosting the Olympic games.
