EL AL Israel Airlines Inaugurates Service To Amman, Jordan

NEW YORK, June 26, 1996 -- El Al Israel Airlines has inaugurated weekly round-trip service between Tel Aviv and Amman, Jordan. The development of this new rout is another historic first for Israel's national airline, made possible by the ongoing spirit of cooperation that exists between the two countries.

El Al will operate five weekly flights from Ben Gurion International Airport to Amman's Markah Airport. Flights will depart Tel Aviv every Sunday through Thursday, with a flying time of approximately 50 minutes. The new service was officially launched on June 23.

"The inauguration of the route to Amman has great significance from both a political and commercial standpoint," stated Joseph Ciechanover, Chairman of the Board of El Al. "The airline will invest in a major marketing effort to develop the route and make it profitable."
