El Al Logo

Route network of the airline company counts about 50 destinations all over the world. Annual passenger traffic is about 4-5 million people.

El AL is considered one of the most secured airline companies in the world. It is because of the continued conflict in Gaza Strip and permanent danger of terrorist activities that also include hijacking.

After the only case of hijacking in company’s history that took place in 1968 unprecedented safety precautions have been taken:

1. All airplanes are equipped with steel floor that separates baggage compartment from passengers.

2. Entrance in the cockpit is protected with additional door with coded lock.

3. On the board of each flight are always present Aviation Safety officers with weapon. Their number may reach 6 people. All of them are from purpose-built army units.

4. All crew members (pilots, fly attendants) attend special courses of close fight and personal defense also they have special behavior skills in emergency situations.

5. Most of the pilots in Israeli airlines are military pilots.

6. Prior the flight all passengers go through additional verification procedures and are often isolated from passengers from other flights in special “airside”. For example, in
Domodedovo all El Al flights depart from the gate 12 that is separated with glass fencing.

7. Luggage is also carefully surveyed, careful attention is paid to passengers that are not Israeli citizens.
