EL AL Israel Airlines intends to expand its Florida service to Tel Aviv with a holiday-focused seasonal schedule from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in September, and year-round operations starting in the spring of 2024.

The new seasonal flights will be timed to coincide with the Jewish High Holidays through October, the airline said in an announcement this week. There will be six flights: three each in September and in October. Management did not specify a date for the start of the carrier’s regularly scheduled flights next year.

The company also announced it intends to add a sixth weekly flight on its Miami International Airport to Tel Aviv route effective May 23. The flight will depart Saturday evenings from Miami at 11:30 p.m. and arrive at Ben-Gurion airport at 6:30 p.m. the following evening.

“EL AL is thrilled to continue opening new routes and increasing our service in the U.S.”, said Marc Cavaliere, EL AL’s senior vice president for the Americas, in a statement. “We’ll be operating more than 40 flights a week to Israel, continuing our mission to be the bridge between Israel and the world”.

The airline says it carried more than 100,000 passengers on more than 450 flights between Miami and Tel Aviv last year, and demand for Florida to Israel air travel is on the rise.

“As demand for travel continues to increase from Florida to Israel, across all segments, we’re confident that the new service to Fort Lauderdale will exceed our customers’ expectation for service, convenience and value”, Cavaliere said.
