On Tuesday, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced a partnership between Israel and Florida that would serve as a foundation for the new, nonstop seasonal El Al air service between Tel Aviv and Orlando. The new flights, operating during the months of July and August, will offer a direct link between Israel’s second most populous city and one of Florida’s most popular destinations.

DeSantis, an ardent supporter of preserving a healthy relationship between the U.S. and Israel, has been vocal about his stance on making the Sunshine State the most pro-Israel state in the country.

Officials in attendance for today's announcement hope that the flights to Tel Aviv are successful enough to become a constant in the state.
