Delta is the latest U.S. airline to announce plans to resume service to Israel after an almost eight-month-long hiatus. The Atlanta-based airline is set to restart flights to Tel Aviv on June 7, 2024.

Flights are scheduled to operate daily from the carrier’s New York-JFK hub with an Airbus A330-900neo aircraft. In a news release, Delta said that the resumption of service “follows an extensive security risk assessment by the airline.”

The airline added that it “continues to closely monitor the situation in Israel in conjunction with government and private-sector partners.” Delta – along with other several other carriers – halted flights to Israel in October 2023 as war broke out between Israel and Hamas.

In September 2023, Delta had 142 scheduled flights between the U.S. and Israel, according to Cirium Diio data. The airline previously served Tel Aviv via its New York-JFK, Boston, and Atlanta hubs.

Delta joins United, who resumed service to Tel Aviv this month from its hub in Newark. American has yet to formally announce plans to resume its Tel Aviv flights.
