US Airways has launched new flights to Tel Aviv from its hub at Philadelphia International Airport.
Daily flights will operate between the two cities – something that will afford more choice to passengers travelling between the United States and Israel.
Suzanne Boda, the airline’s east coast senior vice-president, said that US Airways was looking forward to welcoming travellers on board the new flights.
"Tel Aviv is an extremely exciting component of our trans-Atlantic portfolio and we’re pleased by the strong bookings our newest route is seeing" she commented.
Flights will be operated using an Airbus A330-200 aircraft, which features 20 seats in business class and 238 economy seats.
The route will be US Airways’ longest at 5,700 miles and will operate for 12 months of the year.
Israel’s second city is the third transatlantic destination to be launched by the carrier this year after the introduction of flights to Birmingham and Oslo.
US Airways will launch flights to Hawaii from its largest hub, Charlotte, on December 17th.
