It is understood that El Al is planning to add more Tel Aviv-Tokyo flights to take place between October and November this year.
The carrier has put the proposal through to the relevant authorities and is still subject to government approval.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
El Al To Add 2 Extra Tel Aviv-Tokyo Flights…
As per data from AeroRoutes.com*, El Al plans to add two extra weekly flights to its Tel Aviv-Tokyo service, bringing the total to three weekly.
This will begin on October 29 until November 14, and will then revert back to twice-weekly until the 1st of December when the route temporarily suspends for the Winter.
Services will then restart again on March 5 and will remain on thrice weekly, representing an overall capacity increase on the route.

The Japanese City Continues To Boost in Popularity…
It remains clear that Tokyo is a city that continues to have a boosted level of popularity.
In its continued efforts toward post-COVID recovery, Tokyo-based All Nippon Airways (ANA) now operates over 1,000 flights per week.
From May 30-June 6, ANA operated 982 flights, which is an increase of 2.61% compared to the same period last year.
Such a figure is around 103 movements shy of 2019’s levels, but as you will see in the table below, the carrier has been consistently operating 1,000+ flights per week, enabling further tourist & economic benefits in Tokyo:
But in the context of El Al, this again is another example of international tourism working well between Tokyo and Tel Aviv.
