Starting Friday, May 26, Delta Airlines will launch three weekly flights from Tel Aviv (Ben Gurion Airport) to Boston (Boston Logan International Airport).
DL243 will depart from Tel Aviv at 11:50 am on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, arriving in Boston at 4:45 pm (same day).
DL242 will take off from Boston at 4:20 pm, arriving in Tel Aviv at 9:35 am (the next day) on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.
Flights on this route will be operated by A330-900neo aircraft with four seating options – including 29 Delta One Suites and 28 Delta Premium Select seats. Passengers booking these two classes will enjoy, among other things, perks like SkyPriority, offering a smoother check-in service on the ground.
According to Esty Herskowicz, Delta’s Commercial Director in Israel, occupancy on this route is almost full on all first flights in both directions, a testament to the high demand for flights between the U.S. and Israel.
Furthermore, Delta’s hub at Boston Logan offers same-day connections to more than 25 destinations across the United States, including Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Seattle International Airport (SEA). This summer, Delta will operate up to 155 daily direct flights to 52 destinations, an increase of more than 20% in capacity compared to Delta’s previous record, set before the pandemic in October 2019.
The first flight to Boston, scheduled for tomorrow (Friday), will be preceded by an inauguration ceremony with the Minister of Transportation, Merav Michaeli, the U.S. Ambassador to Israel, Thomas Niles, and Director of Ben Gurion Airport, Shmuel Zakai, all in attendance.
Esty Herskowicz: “We are thrilled to launch this new route, as we now have ten weekly flights to the U.S. Direct access to Boston and New York, two of our hubs on the East Coast, make it easier for our customers to do business or enjoy their vacation.”
