El Al Israel Airlines announced on Monday, September 19, that it will resume direct service between Tel Aviv and Tokyo in March 2020, two years after the original launch date was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since the airline’s second-quarter figures showed a recovery from the decline in travel during the pandemic, it has been aiming to increase eastbound flights.

The idea has been strengthened by Saudi Arabia’s announcement that it will permit overhead flights by all foreign carriers, made during US President Joe Biden’s visit there in July. As a result, flights from Israel to Asia would be shorter.

It is yet unknown when that corridor—which would connect to Oman, a neighboring country—will be properly inaugurated. Israel lacks diplomatic links with either Arab nation, and the US had to mediate in order for Saudi Arabia to grant its jets permission to fly over Saudi Arabia in the past.

El Al has plans to add a 16th Boeing 787 in 2023 to accommodate demand on long-haul routes. These planes will be used for the upcoming twice-weekly flights to the capital of Japan.
