El Al Opens Direct Flight to Venice


This week El Al launched its first direct flight to Venice, Italy – flight LY289.  It is scheduled to take off from Tel Aviv every Tuesday morning at 09:30 a.m., and now joins the other 10 weekly flights to Italy – comprised of nine to Rome, and one to Milan.

The Italian Ambassador to Israel, Mr. Francesco Maria Talo, arrived at Ben Gurion Airport to dedicate the maiden flight of the Venice route, and thanked El Al CEO  Eliezer Shkedy for El Al’s large investment to provide service to Italian destinations, and was sure that because Venice was such a popular holiday destination, it would prove to be a great success for El Al.
