United Airlines has plans to resume its nonstop service between Newark and Tel Aviv on March 6, 2024.

The Chicago-based carrier plans to bring back the route after it was suspended in October at the start of the Israel-Hamas war — here are the details.

United Will Resume Flights From Newark to Tel Aviv

This March, United will resume its service to Tel Aviv, marking the first U.S. domestic carrier to do so.

Initially, United will operate flights between Newark and Tel Aviv with a stop in Munich “to ensure all service providers are ready to support nonstop service to and from Newark,” according to a statement. These services will begin on March 2 and 4, 2024.

Then, on March 6, 2024, United plans on flying nonstop between Newark and Tel Aviv with 1 flight per day. As such, the airline will reenter the market with daily flights from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) after operations were suspended due to unrest in Israel and the Gaza Strip.

Here’s the schedule for the 10-plus hour flight:

  • Depart Newark (EWR) 3:55 p.m. — Arrive Tel Aviv (TLV) 9:20 a.m. (+1)
  • Depart Tel Aviv (TLV) 11:30 a.m. — Arrive Newark (EWR) 4:40 p.m.

United’s Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner will fly the route between Newark (EWR) and Tel Aviv (TLV) and is equipped with 4 cabins: 199 economy seats, 54 Economy Plus seats, 21 Premium Plus seats, and 44 United Polaris business class seats in a 1-2-1 configuration.

In October, several carriers, such as American Airlines and Delta Air Lines, halted flights to Israel following the government’s declaration of war and military action against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

United will keep an eye on the situation in Tel Aviv and adjust the route accordingly but says that the resumption is “the first step in restoring vital passenger and cargo service.” Furthermore, United has shared that it hopes to add a second daily trip from Newark to Tel Aviv beginning in May based on demand for travel.

In the fall, United has also said it will reassess the possibility of continuing flights from San Francisco (SFO), Washington-Dulles (IAD), and Chicago O’Hare (ORD) to Tel Aviv. We’ll provide an update when we know more about the resumption of these services.

Final Thoughts

United plans to resume flights to Tel Aviv on March 6, 2024. While conflict continues in the region, it’s a positive development to see airlines connecting Tel Aviv with the world once again.
