Atlanta-based Delta Airlines said Monday it has opened an office in Tel Aviv ahead of its planned resumption of daily flights to Tel Aviv scheduled on March 28. Esty Herskowicz, a Delta employee in Israel for the past 14 years, will serve as director of sales in Israel, with Ness Aviation its general sales agency.
Delta, which stopped flying the Tel Aviv route in 2001 with outbreak of the Intifada, recently filed for bankruptcy and unveiled a plan to cut around 9,000 jobs in an effort to regain profitability within two years.
