Delta Airlines and El Al Israel launch strategic partnership

Delta Airlines and El Al Israel have announced that they will launch a strategic partnership that will offer easy connections for passengers travelling between United States and Israel.

Delta Airlines and El Al Israel will implement reciprocal codeshare and frequent flyer benefits, including the ability to earn and redeem miles across both carriers.

In the initial stages of the partnership, passengers connecting onto Delta or El Al’s services will be able to check in for their entire journey, with boarding passes issued and bags checked through to their destination. Delta offers up to 200 same-day connections from Tel Aviv via its U.S. gateways of Atlanta, Boston, and New York-JFK while El Al offers passengers additional nonstop service to Tel Aviv from Boston and New York-JFK, alongside their Los Angeles, Miami, and Newark service.

Working closely with EL AL will further strengthen Delta’s connection to Israel by offering more customers unrivalled access to destinations across the U.S.. Enhanced partnerships are integral to our long-term strategy to better connect Delta customers around the world.
