SK Service To TLV

Wed Feb 20, 2013 4:18 pm

Scandinavian Airlines resumed TLV last year after a long absence in the market and is now adding a third weekly flight.

Can someone tell me when the carrier first started flying to Tel Aviv?

Sometime in the early 1950s. In the April 1952 timetable TLV was one of many stops on one of the two weekly DC-6 flights to Tokyo. One flight stopped in TLV and the other in CAI.

By April 1955, TLV was a turnaround flight once a week with a DC-6, routing STO-CPH-DUS-VIE-IST-TLV.

In the August 1957 timetable it was still the same.

They seem to have dropped TLV sometime between 1957 and 1959 as there is no service in the July 1959 timetable. It shows a connection at ATH with a ATH-TLV sector of a twice-weekly Swissair flight ZRH-ATH-TLV.

TLV was back again in the April 1963 timetable with 2 Caravelles a week. One operated CPH-DUS-VIE-IST-TLV and the other CPH-DUS-VIE-ATH-TLV.

In the November 1967 timetable it was still the same as in 1963.

Thanks, I had also seen that 1959 sked that did not show TLV flights. I did not know that they had served the city earlier.
