Israel and Canada have signed an agreement to allow more airlines to fly between
the two countries. The agreement states that any country can nominate more
scheduled airlines to operate on the route.
El Al Israel Airlines Ltd.
currently operates four weekly flights between Tel Aviv and Toronto, and Air
Canada has daily flights between Israel and Canada. Passenger traffic on the
route is 130,000 people a year.
“The agreement will make it possible to
increase flights between the countries to 12 passenger and cargo flights a week,
and it will increase incoming tourism to Israel,” Transportation Minister
Yisrael Katz said.
