United to Resume Flights Between Newark and Tel Aviv

United announced plans to resume a daily international flight from New York/Newark to Tel Aviv, Israel, the first step in restoring vital passenger and cargo service that was suspended in October.

The initial NewarkTel Aviv flights on March 2 and 4 will stop in Munich to ensure all service providers are ready to support non-stop service to and from Newark. No Newark departures to Tel Aviv are planned for March 3 and 5. United says its goal is to resume daily nonstop service to Tel Aviv beginning March 6.

United conducted a detailed safety analysis in making this decision, including close work with security experts and government officials in the United States and Israel. The airline also worked closely with the Air Line Pilots Association and the Association of Flight Attendants to develop the protocols to ensure they are safe and well-informed.

United will continue to monitor the situation in Tel Aviv and adjust the schedule as warranted, including changes to the resumed service from New York/Newark announced today. The airline said it is eager to resume a second daily Tel Aviv flight from Newark as soon as May as travel demand recovers. Previous flying from San Francisco, Washington Dulles and Chicago O’Hare will be evaluated for resumption beginning in the fall.
