EL AL subsidiary Sun D´Or, operating services to Salzburg. Israeli families are spending their holidays in Salzburg in Summer 2019.
Israel is a trendy holiday destination! After a 3.5 hours flight and 1582 air miles you are welcomed in Tel Aviv: “Brukhim haBaim”
Tel Aviv, Jerusalem or Haifa – these Israeli cities have developed from being pure places of pilgrimage to becoming one of the trendiest holiday destinations for Europeans! Several years ago, it used to be Boeing 747 of the national airline EL AL, which flew pilgrims from Salzburg to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Nowadays young families are going Israel to trace their families´ roots and to spend their holidays in the land of their forefathers.
“We are very pleased to welcome numerous guests from Israel und to observe an increase in overnight stays especially in winter. We are really content to be able to offer flights for guests from the EuRegio Salzburg-Berchtesgadener Land to Israel starting next summer”, says Christopher Losmann, Authorized Signatory and Divisional Head of Marketing & Sales of Salzburg Airport.
In winter time Israeli tourists have already been re-visiting Salzburg for several years. A clear trend can be observed today and it is guaranteed that the EuRegio has a lot to offer, which will bring back Israeli guests in summer as well.
“The market for tourism in the SalzburgerLand has developed extremely well especially in summer”, says Leo Bauernberger, CEO of SalzburgLand Tourismus GmbH. “Overnight stays of Israeli guests doubled within the last five summer seasons. The improved flight connection from Tel Aviv to Salzburg Airport with Sun D´Or allows us to demonstrate the beauty of the city and the Province of Salzburg to even more Israelis visiting the region”.
Fly from Tel Aviv´s beaches to the slopes in the Province of Salzburg in winter and enjoy arts, culture, sightseeing, shopping and other activities with an impressive mountain scenery in summer time. There is a clear trend to be observed by the tourism industry in Salzburg: young families fly to the City of Mozart with EL AL and its subsidiarySun D´Or.
“On May 30th 2019 Sun D´Or starts operating services to Tel Aviv! Whether you visit the Church of Nativitiy in Bethlehem or enjoy the mix of thousand-year-old cultures, city break and breathtaking landscapes, the silence of the desert, trendy bars, restaurants and clubs or sunbathing at the beach – as contradictory as this may sound, in Israel all this and even more becomes reality”, says Christopher Losmann, Authorized Signatory and Divisional Head of Marketing & Sales of Salzburg Airport.

The subsidiary of Israeli national carrier EL AL – Sun d`Or– started operations on October 1st 1977, at that time under the name of EL AL Charter Services Ltd. In 1981 the airline, based at Ben-Gurion Airport, received a new name: Sun d´Or. When national carrier EL AL was privatized, Sun d´Or was privatized as well. Until 2013 flights were operated in codeshare under the name of EL AL. Today Sun d´Or operates scheduled, seasonal and charter flights using leased Boeing 737-800 under its own name. EL AL is still responsible for the crews as well as the maintenance of aircrafts and both airlines share the Matmid Frequent Flyer Club. Today Sun d´Or operates flights to more than 40 destinations in Europe, Africa and the Mediterranean. A re-branding process in 2009 connected Sun d´Or inseparably with a holiday concept. The brand promise “Follow the Sun” was launched to ensure that the holiday experience starts right when boarding the plane.
