The many hassles and layovers that Philly travelers faced before may finally be a thing of the past.
The daily flights to Tel Aviv give travelers a new option for getting to the homeland.
They took a test flight last week. It was historic and would intensify competition among the carriers, said Chief Executive Officer of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, Ira Schwartz to the Inky.
“The competition is already starting. El Al is offering free transportation to Newark for people who want to fly to Israel,” said Schwartz to the Inky. “This is going to result in lower fares, which I think is going to be great for the consumer.”
