EL AL is considered the safest airline in the world and has won high marks for the quality of its service, its on-time performance and its low percentage of baggage loss.
EL AL transports over 4 million passengers each year, flies direct and nonstop from 45 destinations around the world in North and South America, Western Europe and Eastern Europe, Africa and the Far East. El Al also offers flights to hundreds of other destinations through agreements with other airlines that connect to the direct destinations.
EL AL today operates an all Boeing aircraft fleet of 42 passenger planes and 1 cargo aircraft. Its annual revenue is approximately 2.5 billion dollars. EL AL is the leading airline in the cargo market to and from Israel and is active in the charter market as well, through its subsidiary airline Sun D'Or.
EL AL maintains close ties with Christian communities and community leaders throughout the world. As an airline that offers the Holy Land experience from the moment passengers enter the aircraft in their home country, EL AL believes in an alliance with the pilgrim traveller. EL AL carried His Holiness Pope John Paul II when he visited the Holy Land in 2000 and is proud to have been chosen once again to carry His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI in 2009.
