EL AL Increases London Operations Adds Weekly Frequencies to its Summer 2014 Timetable
When the summer 2014 timetable goes into effect on April 1, 2014, EL AL will operate up to 5 daily flights to London, a total of up to 27 weekly flights.
The expanded number of lights meets the increasing demand of both leisure and business passengers.
Today EL AL operates 15 weekly flights to London – 11 to Heathrow Airport (morning and evening, Sunday to Thursday and a morning flight on Friday), as well as 4 weekly flights to Luton Airport.
With the new timetable, in addition to its 11 weekly flights to Heathrow on 777 aircraft, EL AL will operate up to 16 weekly flights to Luton.
The flights to Luton will include 2 daily flights, Sunday to Friday, operated on 737 aircraft. Likewise, during peak seasons, especially July – August, EL AL will operate an additional flight Sundays – Wednesdays.
EL AL will offer the largest number of flights on this route with departures at 5am, 10:15am, 5:15pm and 6:50pm (and during peak season, an additional flight at 8am)
At London Heathrow Airport, EL AL offers hospitality in the renovated King David Lounge to its Gold and Platinum frequent flyers and King David Club members as well as to passengers in premium classes.
Micha Owsinski, EL AL Manager Timetable Planning: “The growing demand for flights on EL AL's London route allows us to offer unprecedented weekly operations in the England – Israel aviation market. London is a major destination for EL AL passengers in all service classes, as it is a very attractive tourist destination year-round and a business destination for thousands of business people each month. By increasing the frequencies to Luton Airport along with the operations to Heathrow Airport, London becomes a very accessible destination and enables EL AL to offer its leisure and business passengers the broadest timetable, meeting most of their demands and needs.”
