A first for any airline, EL AL is offering in-home check-in for customers in Israel. For a fee, a member of the EL AL ground staff and a security representative will come directly to the passenger’s home, hotel, office or other venue of choice and carry out the airline’s full security check process, including baggage weigh-in, eliminating the need for a wait at the airport. Passengers will be issued their boarding cards and their luggage will be transferred directly to Ben-Gurion Airport for their flight. Once at the airport, the passenger can proceed directly to Passport Control with their carry-on luggage. The new service will be offered on flights departing from Israel only, in the area between Netanya to the north and Gedera to the south, Tel Aviv to the west and Jerusalem in the east. You can pre-order the service by phone from one day to six hours prior to your flight’s departure for $49 for up to four passengers and $5 more for each additional passenger; payable by credit card only. Organized groups with a minimum of six passengers can use the service for $15 per passenger.
