El Al Closing Offices in Six Cities

Download PDF for this date

El Al is closing its sales offices in six cities as part of the company’s economic retrenchment movement, a company spokesman confirmed here today. He said the cities will be served by regional offices which will have the areas they now serve expanded. The offices in Pittsburgh and Baltimore are now in the process of being closed down, the spokesman said. He said in the near future the offices in Atlanta, Cleveland, Detroit and San Francisco will also be closed.

The spokesman said that each city will still have a “resident representative” which will be a salesperson working out of his or her home. This will cut down the overhead expense of maintaining an office. The retrenchment is part of the program announced earlier this year by the El Al management in an effort to get the Israeli airline out of the red.
