El Al returning to Miami

Israeli flag carrier El Al is coming back to South Florida with news it will resume nonstop flights to Miami.

The airline last served MIA in 2008.

The route will resume in November with three flights a week.

El Al also flies to Boston, New York JFK, Newark and Los Angeles.

"In our efforts to make MIA a truly global gateway, Israel has always been one of our top strategic targets because of its unique and historically significant global location, and because of its deep cultural ties with Miami," said aviation director Emilio Gonzlez.

Gonzlez said discussions with El Al about reopening the route had been ongoing for more than a year.

"I am pleased to announce today that EL AL will launch the only nonstop flights from South Florida to Israel in the near future. This decision is part and parcel of the strategy in which we recognize the importance of trans-Atlantic routes and our desire to expand EL AL's presence in North America," said David Maimon, CEO, EL AL Israel Airlines.
