Body Is Seeking New Members

Israel
Travel
Corner
By Ami Spektor

Michigan District Mgr.,
El Al Israel Airlines

FOR THE LAST few
months we have witnessed a
remarkable phenomenon in
the American tourism mar-
ket to. Israel. The "open
skies" agreement between
the two governments to-
gether with the approval for
El Al to use four more gate-
ways in the U.S., is no doubt
a milestone in the aviation
and tourism relations bet-
ween Israel and the United
States.
We noticed immediately
following this agreement
three major developments:
airfares to Israel were sub-
stantially reduced, private
and charter companies
planned and advertised
charter flights to Israel and
El Al announced its plan to
use Chicago and Miami as
two additional gateways in
1979, keeping the option of
using the remaining two
(one will most likely be Los
Angeles) in 1980.
Charter flights were
scheduled from various
cities in the United States,
but it appears that many
charter flights will not
leave the ground this winter
as advertised simply be-
cause of a low demand. The
majority of travelers to Is-
rael prefer to go with
scheduled carriers which
offer daily flights (some are
non-stop from New York
with 747 jumbo jet service),
using fares which allow
more flexibility in regard to
length of stay and changing
of departure dates.
Some travel experts be-
lieve that the main reason
for charter "soft sales" is
that Israel's image as a
sun and fun destination is
not yet well known by the
general public. Another
reason mentioned was
that the charter com-
panies are allowed to
cancel flights up to 10
days prior to departure,
for if a departure will not
reach the high load factor
necessary for a profit, the
flight might be cancelled.
Security measures taken
by scheduled airlines,
especially El Al, also
played a role in the mar-
ket trend.
An improvement in
travel to Israel is expected
beginning April 2 for Mid-
western passengers to Is-
,rael when El Al will com-
mence its bi-weekly flights
to Israel from Chicago. El Al
will use a 747 jumbo jet on
this route which will depart
