El Al to fly to Boston?
When Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick was here several months ago, one of his big things was pushing for non-stop service on El Al between Boston and Tel Aviv. Now, you have a chance to make that dream come true. Please keep reading below (Hat Tip: Lance K
Dear Business Leader and Colleague,
Boston Logan International Airport combined with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has a real opportunity to secure New England’s first-ever nonstop air service to Israel. With your help, we think we can dramatically improve our position to obtain this service, which is why I urge you to complete the attached 10-minute survey of your air travel needs as soon as possible.
We have been in productive talks in recent months with Israel’s flag airline—El Al, who has expressed long-term interest in launching nonstop air service between Boston Logan and Tel Aviv. The carrier has already seen Massport’s expert forecasts on the route’s profitability as well as economic estimates that suggest the new service could generate dramatic economic benefits—both for El Al and for the strong communities of interest between New England and Israel. But, if we are going to expedite the start of this service, El Al needs to hear from you – the business, academic, religious and non-profit leaders who would use the service the most. We know there are strong ties with billions in trade, we now need to demonstrate that to El Al. That is why your contribution is so vital to our efforts.
Boston is currently one of the largest US markets without nonstop air service to Israel. And in discussions with New England leaders like you, we believe that our business, academic and cultural communities would prosper with nonstop service between Boston and Israel. We just completed a similar effort to support our efforts with Japan. This effort resulted the announced service by Japan Airlines from Boston to Tokyo. This can happen again with Israel and with your help I am confident we will succeed. Thank you in advance for your assistance on the survey and for your continuing support of Logan Airport.
