An El Al Boeing 777-200ER lands at Ben Gurion International Airport. Two more El Al aircraft can be seen in the background.

El Al was established by the Israeli government in November 1948 (1948-11).[1] Initially offering a weekly service between Tel Aviv and Paris in 1949,[2] the airline began flying to many European destinations the same year, with services to the United States and South Africa starting in 1951.[1] Following delivery of their first Boeing 707–420 in May 1961 (1961-05),[3] the carrier started flying scheduled New York City–Tel Aviv flights—the longest non-stop route flown by any airline at the time.[4]

El Al flies to 18 destinations in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. Following is a list of airports served by the carrier as part of its scheduled services.[5]

A ministry of transport source says that the designation of the two private carriers on the ex-El Al routes, "is only the beginning".
