The South American airline will operate a new route, with the assistance of the Israeli Ministry of Tourism, from Sao Paulo to Israel. The line will begin operating on December 12, three times a week from Santiago via Sao Paulo to Tel Aviv on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. The flight from Brazil to Tel Aviv will last just over 11 hours. As of now, this will be the sole route that allows direct flights between Latin America and Israel.
