EL AL-JetBlue partner to offer connections from Tampa, more

EL AL Israel Airlines and JetBlue Airways recently signed an agreement, providing travelers to Israel with expanded, easier connections.

Travelers living in 38 U.S. cities, including Tampa and six others in Florida, can now make connections to EL AL nonstop flights to/from Israel in partnership with JetBlue.

Passengers need only purchase one ticket for travel between their home city and Israel and on the day of travel, upon checking in, passengers receive boarding cards for both carriers’ flights; luggage is automatically transferred between the JetBlue and EL AL flights.

The agreement, Danny Saadon, vice president, EL AL Israel Airlines, said, “provides passengers travel- ing to Israel a lot more flexibility from a variety of destinations in the USA. We are pleased to formally expand our cooperation with such a reputable airline as JetBlue and make it even easier for EL AL passengers to book travel to Israel.”

EL AL offers up to 32 weekly nonstop flights between the U.S. and Israel, which easily tap into Jet- Blue’s network. Besides Tampa, other Florida cities that will benefit from the new agreement are: Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood, Fort Myers, Jacksonville, Orlando, Sarasota/Bradenton and West Palm Beach.

To purchase a JetBlue/EL AL codeshare ticket, visit, call EL AL at 800-223-6700 or any travel agent.
