El AI Hopes to Expand to
Chicago and Other Areas

Reuven Goldstein, director of
the El Al Israel Airlines office in
the Detroit area, announced this
week that there is the possibility
of extending the airline's services
to Chicago in a matter of several
weeks—.
Goldstein said that El Al is ar-
ranging for tourists to Israel to
be accommodated in rooms in pri-
vate home at the rate of $4 and
$5 a day.
He also stated that El Al has
plans to fly to South America—to
Argentina in September of this
year. By 1974, he said, El Al will
fly to Southeast Asia and to Aus-
tralia and around the world by
1980.
In a statement issued in Chicago
this week, Mordehai Ben-Ari.,
president of El Al, said that El
Al hoped to extend its service to
U.S. cities other than New York,
and that would start with Chicago
to serve the Midwest market.
The Israeli government and the

TOURS

Last year the carrier hauled
13,000 Chicago '-area residents
through its New York gateway.
Ben Ari said he hoped El Al
would be able to better establish
a foothold in the Midwestern area
and "become more widely known."
In order to promote the carrier
in the area, Ben Ari said El Al
and the Israel Tourist Board plan
to conduct a joint promotion.
The airline's fleet has grown in
three years from three to 10 707s,
plus two 747s, reflecting a capacity
increase of 180 per cent. Annual
revenues by the end of March dur-
ing the line's current fiscal year
ending March 31 are expected to
total $125,000,000, 35 per cent over
last year's $93,000,000. The com-
pany has operated "in the black"
since 1959.
