Delta Airlines will launch a direct flight from Tel Aviv to Boston starting May 29, 2022, as Delta C.E.O. Ed Bastian announced at the International Air Transport Association (IATA) annual meeting held in Boston.
This will be the first time Delta flies direct from T.L.V. to Boston, on a three-weekly flight to Logan International Airport every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday. The flights will operate on the Airbus A330-900neo, and customers can choose between Delta One Suites, Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+, and Main Cabin. Prices will start at $679, taxes included.
“As the world returns to international travel, we look forward to expanding our flights between Israel and the United States,” said Esti Hershkovitz, Director of Delta Israel. “There is a lot of demand, and the new Boston route will allow for closer ties between our nations, as well as offer more flight choices during the busy summer period.”
According to Joe Esposito, Delta’s S.V.P. – Network Planning, “We’ve strengthened our Boston hub as demand has accelerated, adding about 3,800 more seats a day by next summer than our last peak in 2019. Boston is a fast-growing market with a booming economy, and we’re committed to offering customers significant choice and better convenience when making their travel plans, in addition to Delta’s superior products and experience.”
“We are excited to welcome new Delta flights to Boston, connecting visitors and travelers to exciting destinations around the world,” added Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker.
The statement also notes that passengers arriving from Israel will have a wide range of connecting flights to 35 cities in North America and beyond. The new route will complement the airline’s direct daily flight from Tel Aviv to New York J.F.K.
