A new interline agreement between Porter Airlines and EL AL Israel Airlines will provide new options for travel between Canada and Israel. The new deal takes advantage of the airlines’ joint operations at Newark Liberty International Airport’s Terminal B as a connecting point between Tel Aviv and Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. Numerous additional Canadian destinations are accessible via Toronto City. Itineraries can be purchased immediately through EL AL at http://www.elal.co.il , by calling 1-800-223-6700, or contacting your travel agent. Travellers can check baggage through to their final destination. Porter offers up to 13 daily roundtrip flights between its downtown Toronto City Airport base and Newark.
Michael Deluce, executive vice-president and chief commercial officer of Porter Airlines, said: “Our frequent Newark-Toronto schedule makes this interline agreement an excellent alternative for people looking to connect with Israel and Canada. We plan to provide even more interline options for customers in the coming months to extend Porter’s reach around the world through our partners.”
Dinah Kutner, general manager for EL AL Canada, observed: “We are very excited to introduce our new interline agreement with Porter Airlines to our Canadian passengers. This will further facilitate travel to Israel for those passengers that work or live close to the downtown core. EL AL passengers will be able to enjoy the additional choice of six weekly flights with a convenient connection via Newark, in addition to the existing flight schedule to Toronto.”
