After a three-year delay in opening the route, El Al will operate direct flights to Tokyo starting in March 2023. The maiden flight is expected to take off on January 1, 2023, and ticket sales began September 19. El Al reported that it will operate two direct weekly flights to Tokyo, on Wednesdays and on Wednesdays. The flights will take place on a Boeing 787 aircraft, which includes three classes of service - tourist, premium and business.
With the announcement of the new line, round-trip airline tickets are offered in tourist class, at launch prices starting at $999 for a "Lite" ticket (excluding baggage and boarding), and starting at $1,159 for a "Classic" ticket (including baggage and boarding). The launch prices are limited to a stock of 500 seats.
El Al's maiden flight to Tokyo was initially intended to take off in March 2020, but due to the corona epidemic that broke out at that time, the company delayed the launch of the line. Since then, the company has been making efforts to relaunch the line, and in June, El Al CEO Dina Ben Tal Gnansia met with Israel's ambassador in Tokyo, Gilad Cohen, to discuss the issue.
The re-opening at the current time is to some extent related to Saudi Arabia's decision last July to open its airspace to all airlines that meet the required conditions. Saudi Arabia's decision has far-reaching effects on Israeli airlines, including the shortening of flight hours to destinations in the East, the possibility of direct flights to distant destinations such as Australia, and the freeing up of flight hours and planes, which will allow the expansion of operations and the launch of new routes.
"We are excited to finally launch the new destination, which will allow Israelis to enjoy the cherry blossoms in Tokyo already in the coming season," said El Al CEO Dina Ben Tal Gnansia. "Japan is a popular destination among our customers, and its opening will allow us to promote and develop inbound Japanese tourism to Israel We continue to work towards the launch of more popular destinations."
