The delay until March 5 is due to “restrictions on entry into Israel and a slower-than-expected return of business travel.”
American Airlines has postponed the launch of its Tel Aviv – Dallas flights. The new route was supposed to be launched in September 2020 but was postponed to October 2021 due to the Cubid crisis and then to January 2022.
American Airlines now told Simple Flying, “This weekend we postponed the launch of Dallas-Fort Worth-Tel Aviv (DFW-TLV) and Seattle-Bangalore, India (SEA-BLR) flights, due to restrictions on entry into Israel. And a slower return than expected “American is fully committed to Israel and India – we are currently serving TLV from Miami (MIA) and New York (JFK) centers, and will begin service from JFK to New Delhi (DEL) on November 12.”
American Airlines returned to Israel for the long term
Tel Aviv – Dallas flights will now begin on March 5, 2022.
American Airlines, the world’s largest airline, stopped serving Israel in 2016 when it suspended its flights to Tel Aviv – Philadelphia, but resumed operations here in May 2021 when it launched its Tel Aviv – New York flights. The company currently operates daily flights between Tel Aviv and New York as well as three weekly flights between Tel Aviv and Miami.
