New El Al Kosher Accommodations for Shabbos Layover Passengers


elalEl Al, Israel’s national airlines, has reached an agreement with the Committee for the Sanctity of the Shabbos enabling frum passengers in transit on Friday afternoon to layover at the airline’s expense when a flight’s departure may violate the Shabbos, reports KosherToday. One such flight scheduled to leave from Bangkok, Thailand to Israel was delayed for technical reasons. Rabbi Nechemia Wilhelm, Tourist Liaison at the Chabad House in Bangkok, arranged accommodation for the passengers at a hotel nearby where they remained until Motzoei Shabbos. 120 people flew out after Shabbos ended. Finding kosher accommodations should not be a problem in the cities El Al flies to.
