Delta Air Lines to Resume Tel Aviv Flights This Week

by Alice

Delta Air Lines will resume flights to Tel Aviv on June 7, marking its return to this route after a suspension in October 2023. The daily service between John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport (TLV) will be operated using an Airbus A330-900neo aircraft.

This decision follows a thorough security risk assessment by Delta, which continues to monitor the situation in Israel in collaboration with government and private-sector partners. The airline, along with many others worldwide, halted flights to Israel last October due to the onset of conflict in the region.


Delta’s resumption of flights comes shortly after United Airlines reestablished and subsequently suspended its service from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to Tel Aviv, citing security concerns related to tensions between Israel and Iran. United is set to resume flights on June 6.


While Delta paused its direct service, its codeshare partner, EL AL Israel Airlines, has maintained operations between Israel and the United States.


The U.S. Department of State has advised American citizens to reconsider travel to Israel and the West Bank due to terrorism and civil unrest and has strongly advised against travel to Gaza because of ongoing terrorism and armed conflict. The State Department highlighted the unpredictability of the security situation and noted that U.S. government employees are prohibited from traveling to Gaza, limiting the U.S. government’s ability to provide consular services there.
