Download PDF for this date

El Al, Israel’s national airline, announced today that it will start regular flights to Bucharest, Rumania, next spring, and will offer two-week tours to that country for Israelis at all-inclusive fares of under $200. El Al’s announcement followed the signing in Jerusalem yesterday of a $14 million Israel-Rumania trade agreement and civil air transportation pact for 1968. The scope of the trade agreement is expected to increase by 15 percent annually in 1969 and 1970.
