Flying from and to Tel Aviv to Auckland, Tokyo, Osaka or Seoul is now possible on Israel’s national airline EL AL.

It doesn’t mean EL AL is adding these East Asian cities to their political restricted network of global destinations. It means EL AL signed a codeshare deal with Hong Kong Airlines.

Hong Kong Airlines will place its “HX” code on EL AL’s flights between Hong Kong and Tel Aviv. Reciprocally, EL AL will add its “LY” code on Hong Kong Airlines flights between Hong Kong and Auckland in New Zealand, Tokyo (Narita) and Osaka in Japan, as well as Seoul in South Korea.

EL AL currently operates six weekly flights between Hong Kong and Tel Aviv on their Dreamliner.

El Al has a difficult situation and longer flight times due to many countries are not allowing them to overfly their territory. Such an agreement must be a welcoming situation for EL AL. The airline is considered the safest airline in the world.

El Al in the past stated they won’t fly to a destination not allowing their security staff to operate in and secure their planes. If this also applies to codeshare destination where flights are operated by Hong Kong Airlines is unclear. Both El Al and Hong Kong Airlines did not yet respond to eTurboNews request for clarification.
