New York, NY - August 09, 2011
- EL AL Israel Airlines placed first in the "Wines on the Wing" airline competition by Global Traveler Magazine, which has a readership geared to business and luxury travel. The winning white wine was selected by 31 expert judges who are wine connoisseurs, sommeliers, wine shop owners and winemakers.
 
The EL AL white wine that won first place as the "Best International First Class White Wine" is Gewürztraminer, produced by the Carmel Winery which is located in the northern part of Israel. Gewürztraminer is currently being served in First Class on all EL AL flights.
 
"Earning first place recognition from these discerning judges is certainly an honor," said Danny Saadon, Vice President, EL AL Israel Airlines, North and Central America. "We are proud of the many fine Israeli wines served in-flight in all classes of service on EL AL as they represent the cultivated vineyards of Israel that are well-regarded worldwide."
