Want to fly SFO-TLV in 14.5 hours?

UNITED Airlines had listened to our petition and just announced that they will start a direct flight from SFO to TLV! starting 3/30/16, 3 flights a week! They even acknowledged our petition in their official press release.

I feel very proud today about our community and want to thank you all for your support. Together we really made it!

A new direct flight from San Francisco to Tel Aviv may be just the ticket. El Al, Israel’s flag carrier, is set to launch the longest nonstop flight from the U.S. to Israel next month, with a journey time of 14 hours and 30 minutes…

The new flight is scheduled to depart San Francisco on March 31st at 10:30pm, and will arrive in Tel Aviv the following day at 3:00pm. The return flight will depart Tel Aviv on April 11th at 1:30am, arriving back in San Francisco at 6:00am the same day.

El Al’s new nonstop service will be operated with a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, configured with 36 business class seats and283 economy seats. The airline will be the first to offer a direct flight between the two cities with this aircraft type.

With a flight time of just over 14 hours, the new El Al service will be the longest nonstop flight from the U.S. to Israel. It will also be the first time that Tel Aviv will be served with a nonstop flight from the west coast of the United States.

El Al’s new service provides a convenient option for passengers traveling between the two cities, as it eliminates the need for a stopover in Europe or elsewhere. It also offers significant time savings compared to other one-stop options currently available.
