Israel’s El Al Airlines says that all employees who come into contact with passengers have now received the Pfizer vaccine to fight COVID-19, according to the Jerusalem Post.n.
That includes flight attendants, security personnel, pilots and other service personnel who are inoculated against the virus.
Earlier this week, El Al was awarded the contract to fly emergency flights between Israel and New York, and Israel and Dubai, although Jerusalem’s main airport, David Ben-Gurion, is shut down until Sunday, February 21, to help mitigate the spread of the virus.
Other Israeli airlines have also said they are being proactive with the vaccinations. El Al’s local competitor, Israir, said 95 percent of its pilots received the dose of the vaccine.
Another airline, Arkia Israeli Airlines, announced around 70 percent of its employees had been vaccinated against COVID-19.
