Hello ,
i had the chance to get the LH general time table dating from 1962 1963 1964 , as far as i can see i do not see any regular air services from Germany to TLV .
Do some of you know when LH started to fly TLV ?
Any comment would be appreciated .

Started 3rd November 1968

Google "The History of Lufthansa in Israel" and it'll give you the corresponding Lufthansa webpage. Something here doesn't like the link.

Service started in 1968 and not before quite a bit of controversy and protest. In the 1960s, a mere 20 years after the end of WWII, there were still plenty of survivors of the war and many others in Israel who felt that relations with Germany should be held suspect. And that included allowing Lufthansa to serve Tel Aviv.

By the 1980s in Tel Aviv you could walk in the city center near the corner of Ben-Yehuda Street and Allenby Street and see an enormous, illuminated L-U-F-T-H-A-N-S-A sign on the side of the office building where they had their city center office for many decades. It loomed 8 or 9 floors above this part of the city above all the surrounding buildings and still caused a bit of discomfort for several holocaust survivors I know personally.

Today Lufthansa is the largest foreign carrier serving Israel !

Hi Dennys

The text from the webpage is

Lufthansa German Airlines commenced flights to Tel Aviv on November 3, 1968, operating two weekly flights between Frankfurt and Tel Aviv. In its first year of activity on the route, the airline carried just 1,200 passengers, operating a “Europajet” Boeing 727 aircraft, the most technologically advanced medium-haul trijet, of the time.

Today, over four decades later Lufthansa proudly holds the title of largest foreign carrier in Israel for nearly a decade, serving Tel Aviv with 19 weekly flights, from Germany’s two leading international hubs, Frankfurt and Munich. From the end of April, Lufthansa customers have a choice between five weekly flights on the Munich – Tel Aviv route, or 14 weekly flights between Frankfurt and Tel Aviv.

Throughout 42 years of operation in Israel, Lufthansa has continually been at the vanguard of introducing the latest technology on the route. The carrier was the first to operate the Airbus A320 family of jets and recently made history as the first airline to introduce the longest commercial aircraft, the Airbus 340-600, on flight to Tel Aviv.

Beyond Lufthansa's technical achievements in Israel, the carrier takes great pride in continuing a long standing commitment of serving as a bridge between Germany and Israel. Since its first days in Israel, the airline has supported cultural ties between both countries as well as sponsoring youth exchanges.

Tourism to Israel is also a main facet of the carrier's local commitment. Since 1968 Lufthansa has supported the local economy by flying millions of tourists from around the world, continuing its efforts to promote tourism to Israel worldwide across all religious and ethnic backgrounds.

Does LH still fly a 744 there from FRA or has it totally been replaced by the A346 on that route?

Looking at acars logs it seems to be (approximately) alternate 343 and 346 with occasional 333 on the LH690. The most recent B744 was last October 16th.

This is to accomodate the slower demand in the winter months. For the summer schedule they'll be back to a 744 on the day flight (LH686) and an A346 on the night flight (LH690).



Public service announcement: "It's" = "it is". To indicate posession, write "its." Looks wrong, but it's correct grammar
