Twice weekly flights will begin in September.
In response to heavy demand for flights to Japan, El Al Israel Airlines Ltd. (TASE: ELAL) will inaugurate a route in September.
For now, the airline is only planning two weekly flights, in order to meet growing demand by Israeli businesspeople wanting to go to Japan. Israeli travellers currently have to fly via Hong Kong to reach various Japanese destinations. El Al will probably use recently leased wide-bodied Boeing 767s, which will enter service this autumn, for the route.
