Chaim V’Chessed reports that United will operate flights from Tel Aviv to Newark on Saturday and Sunday evening while Ben Gurion is officially closed.
One-way flights are bookable in coach on United.com for $586, 45K United miles, 40K Air Canada miles, or 32K Turkish miles, among other Star Alliance award options.
United remains the only airline in the world that has continued service to Israel throughout the pandemic. They continue to operate cargo flights to Israel without passengers.
Foreign nationals do not need permission to leave Israel.
Israelis going to a funeral, getting medical treatment, or going to a legal proceeding that requires their presence can travel out of Israel on the flights by just filling out this form and bringing it to the airport.
Other Israelis with an extenuating reason need to request permission to leave the country here.
It’s still unclear when flights from the US to Israel may resume or if Ben Gurion will reopen on Monday or remain closed.
