Israel: El Al increases flights to South Africa!
El Al, the flag carrier of Israel, is set to increase the frequency of scheduled passenger flights to South Africa. Effective 10 June 2022, the airline will offer a second weekly flight between Ben Gurion Airport (TLV) in Tel Aviv and OR Tambo International Airport (JNB) in Johannesburg. The additional service will be operated on Fridays (TLV > JNB) and Saturdays (JNB > TLV).
Travellers may complete the entry form to Israel 10 days prior to the departure date of a flight to the country. It is not required to present a negative result on a Covid-19 test before boarding a flight to Israel. The PCR testing mandate for those entering the country at airports was lifted, and the isolation required until that test result was also canceled. Confirmed COVID cases will not be permitted to board a flight to Israel.
