Israeli flag at Boston airport marks direct Tel Aviv flights

Logan International Airport paraded the Israeli flag together with the American one on Sunday night to mark the departure of the first direct, Tel-Aviv bound flight out of Boston in close to 30 years.

“If there is something that Bostonians do not like to do is to connect through JFK [Airport in New York],” joked Uri Steinberg of Israel’s Ministry of Tourism in reference to the historic rivalry between Bean Town and the Big Apple.

He spoke at a special reception to honor the launch by Israel’s national carrier El Al of its new non-stop line, its fourth to North America, along with Los Angeles, Toronto, and the New York – New Jersey area.
