EL AL Israel Airlines flights & tickets

El Al Israel Airlines is the flag carrier airline of Israel, and has been in operation since 1948. This Israeli based airline services over 50 destinations including Europe, the Americas, Middle East, Far East and domestic locations, operating out of its main hub of Ben Gurion Airport. El Al is a very unique airline; it is the only commercial airline that has aircrafts equipped with a missile defense system.

This airline has also aided in several successful humanitarian efforts, rescuing Jewish people from other countries and transporting them back to Israel safely. Operation Solomon, the rescue of over 14,000 Jewish refugees from Ethiopia, earned this airline the world record for most passengers on a single aircraft in 1991. Their ground and onboard security is a cut above the rest, making this one of the world’s most secure airlines. Another interesting fact about El Al is they do not fly passengers on the Jewish Sabbath, or religious holidays.

El Al flights are powered by a fleet of Boeing aircrafts exclusively. The bulk of the fleet is made up on Boeing 737-800 and 737-900ER planes. In the coming years, this Israeli airline will add 16 new aircrafts to their fleet, made up of a combination of Boeing 787-8 and Boeing 787-9 models. The Boeing aircrafts have a variety of seating classes based on aircraft. The smaller 737 series offer business and economy class, 767 models offer business, economy plus, and economy seating, and the larger models offer an additional first class option. Smaller Boeing makes seat roughly 150-200 passengers, while the 777-200 has a 279 passenger capacity, and the 747-400 boasts an impressive 380 seats!
