El Al to fly to Boston
I arrived in Boston today to the news that El Al will be starting direct flights from Israel to Boston in June. This is from two separate emails (Hat Tip: Lance K
The Consulate General of Israel to New England is pleased to announce that an agreement was reached between El Al and Massport for direct flights to Tel Aviv. Consul General of Israel, Mr. Yehuda Yaakov, remarked on this achievement, "Direct flights pave the way for a further strengthening of Israel-US ties, both economically and culturally. We look forward to seeing many more of our New England friends exploring firsthand our diverse society and rich history." El Al will conduct direct flights from Boston's Logan Airport to Ben Gurion Airport beginning this summer.
Israeli airline El Al will begin nonstop flights between Boston and Israel in June 2015, Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick announced Monday.
El Al will fly the route using Boeing 767-300ER aircraft with 218 seats, including 22 business class seats, thrice weekly.
Flight 015 will depart Tel Aviv at 12:30 a.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays and arrive in Boston at 5:45 a.m.
Flight 016 will depart Boston the same day at 9 p.m. and arrive in Tel Aviv the next day at 3:05 p.m.
So will I give up my puddle hopping and start flying El Al non-stop to Boston? I suspect that most of you know the answer to that question
