Emirates has confirmed that its daily service to Tel Aviv will begin on 23rd June 2022. The airline will operate its three-class Boeing 777-300ER aircraft on this route, providing eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class, and 304 spacious seats in Economy Class.
As COVID-19 travel restrictions ease worldwide and more borders open, Emirates Airline’s Chief Commercial Officer, Adnan Kazim, said, “We look forward to welcoming customers onboard our flights to and from Tel Aviv this summer, and to offering them substantial connectivity to and through our Dubai hub.”
“As well as unlocking tremendous pent-up demand, Emirates’ entry into Israel will mean more options for travellers as they return to the sky, and even more opportunities for businesses to visit Dubai and beyond, where we offer our trademark hospitality and award-winning onboard experience,” Mr Kazim said.
On 23rd June, EK931 will take off at 15:50, and arrive at 18:00 (local time) at Ben Gurion Airport. Return flight EK 932 leaves Tel Aviv at 19:55 and arrives in Dubai at 23:59 (local time). Schedules have been planned to provide convenient access to Dubai and optimal connections to popular holiday destinations like Thailand, India, the Philippines, the Maldives and Sri Lanka.
The new Emirates flights will make it possible for passengers to easily connect from Emirates points to multiple daily and weekly flights throughout India, Australia, the Philippines, Thailand and South Africa, all of which have vibrant Jewish communities.
On each flight, the new Tel Aviv service will deliver 20 tonnes of cargo, allowing Israeli companies and start-ups to export pharmaceuticals, high-tech goods, fruits and vegetables and other perishables. Manufacturing raw materials, components, semiconductors and e-commerce parcels are also expected to be transported.
