Seoul, Korea (29 August, 2014) – Korean Air has announced that it will resume its service between Incheon International Airport, Seoul and Tel Aviv.
Commencing 13 September, Korean Air will operate three flights a week (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday) on the Incheon-Tel Aviv route, utilizing a B777-200 aircraft.
Korean Air has temporarily suspended its operation on the Incheon-Tel Aviv route since 19 July due to the security concern caused by the deployment of Israeli troops around Gaza.
As air safety is now secured after an open-ended cease-fire agreement between Israel and Palestine, Korean Air decided to resume its operation to Tel Aviv.
Tel Aviv is Israel’s technological and economic hub and the gateway to Jerusalem, a Holy Land for both Jewish and Muslim. Located on the Mediterranean coast in central-west Israel, the city is the starting point for pilgrimage to sacred places in Israel, Egypt, Turkey and Jordan.
Korean Air will make its utmost efforts to offer safe and convenient service to the passengers travelling to Israel.
