El Al to file appeal in relation to Air India's Tel Aviv-Delhi service: report

26 March, 2018

El Al reportedly plans to file an appeal at the Supreme Court in relation to the launch of Air India‏'s Tel Aviv-Delhi service, operating through the airspace of Saudi Arabia (Reuters/Israel Hayom/The Middle East Monitor/The Times of Israel, 23/24/25-Mar-2018). As previously reported by CAPA, El Al stated the opening of sales for Air India's route through airspace El Al is not permitted to pass through is a precedent that provides a significant advantage to foreign carriers and prevents equal and fair opportunities. Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed hope for the launch of Tel Aviv-Mumbai service through the airspace over Saudi Arabia.
