El Al Israel Airlines has decided to end its Chicago flights via Toronto as the latest cost saving measure at the company to focus on routes with a continuous high demand from passengers. The airline said it would continue to operate its flights to Toronto three to four times a week, and that it would aim to serve transit passengers to Chicago through code-share agreements with US airlines. It also said it would strengthen its Miami and Los Angeles routes with additional flights. The announcement comes a day after the carrier said it was dropping its flights to Istanbul and Larnaka, Cyprus as a further cost cutting move. An official at the Turkish Embassy told The Jerusalem Post they understood the decision was an economic one, refuting press reports that the Turkish government was angry the flag carrier was ending its flights to that country.
