El Al adds Dublin and Dusseldorf to European route network

Israeli carrier El Al has outlined plans to expand its European route network next year with services to Dublin and Dusseldorf.

The airline explained the plans that will start in summer 2020 in a first-half results presentation and it will add to the 21 destinations in western Europe it already flies.

Both the new routes will operate three times a week and operated utilising Boeing 737s.

El Al has already revealed plans to open new long-haul routes to Tokyo and Chicago next year. In May this year, it restarted a Tel Aviv-Manchester link.

The airline reported in its first-half results that it managed to break even at pre-tax level during the second quarter, up on the previous $23.4 million loss.

Over the first-half of the year, it made a pre-tax loss of $70.7 million compared with the $80.3 million interim loss in 2018.
