Israel’s national air-carrier El Al Israel Airlines is planning to enhance connectivity between India and Israel by launching Tel Aviv-New Delhi service from summer, a senior airline official said.“We plan to introduce an air service between our capital Tel Aviv and New Delhi from the coming summer season,” El Al Israel Airlines Limited General Manager (India) Judah Sameul told PTI in Mumbai.

The proposed flight would operate twice a week, Samuel said, adding that, “however, the final dates for the launch have not yet been finalised.”At present El Al Airlines operates three flights a week from Mumbai to Tel Aviv and has a commercial tie-up with national air-carrier Air India and Naresh Goyal-owned private airline Jet Airways, he said.The carrier was also mulling flights to some other destinations. However, they were only on the drawing board stage, he said.“We are also looking at other destinations in India like Bangalore, but they would come at a later stage,” Samuel said.
