United Airlines Launches Flights Between San Francisco and Tel Aviv, Israel

United Airlines has launched nonstop flights between San Francisco and Tel Aviv, Israel.

Flight US954 will depart San Francisco International Airport three times weekly on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays at 20:00 to arrive in Tel Aviv at 20:10 the following day. The flight time will be 14 hours 10 minutes.

The return flight UA955 will depart Tel Aviv at 00:55 on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays, arriving in San Francisco at 06:00 the same day. The flight time will be 15 hours 5 minutes.

United will normally operate the route with Boeing 787-9 aircraft, however Boeing 777 aircraft will be used for several weeks in June and July 2016.

We congratulate United for its new route between San Francisco and Israel, said Anat Ben Yosef, Consul, Israel Ministry of Tourism. Not only will Uniteds service be extremely convenient for tourists traveling to Israel from northern California and the Pacific Northwest but it will also be a boon for the vast numbers of travelers in the high-tech industry who virtually commute between the Silicon Valleys of California and Israel. Last year was a record year for tourism from the United States to Israel, and we expect this year to be even better.

San Francisco is a key center for Israeli business travel and one of the most popular U.S. leisure destinations for Israelis. 

United currently offers twice-daily Boeing 777 nonstop flights between its New York hub, Newark Liberty International Airport, and Tel Aviv.
