About Arkia Israeli Airlines

Arkia Israeli Airlines, often known as Arkia, is an Israeli airline with its main hub at Ben Gurion Airport Israel. The airline flies to over 40 destinations across Europe and parts of Asia and Africa. Arkia operates some flights on a regular basis. However, the majority of its flights are flown on a seasonal basis.

The carrier was founded in 1949 under the name Israel Inland Airlines and initially flew routes from Tel Aviv to different regions within Israel. In the 1950s, the airline rebranded and renamed itself Arkia Israel Airlines, which is what it's known as today.

Today, Arkia is Israel's second-largest airline. In 2022 it was announced that flag carrier El Al had signed an agreement to acquire and merge with the airline.
