Japan's embassy event took place last Thursday (Thursday) ahead of the launch of the first direct line between Israel and the land of the rising sun.
As part of the event, Yoav Weiss, who runs the Italian, Asian and Oceanian regions in El Al, spoke. In his speech, Weiss addressed special adjustments being made to the Japanese audience ahead of flights that will begin in less than a month, on March 11.
According to him, Bal Al tried to recruit Japanese-speaking Israeli flight attendants, since company attendants must be Israeli. After failing to recruit Japanese-speaking Israeli flight attendants, it was decided to try to change the procedures and for the first time to recruit non-Israeli flight attendants, Japanese flight attendants, in order to also serve Japanese passengers arriving on direct flights to Israel.
Weiss also said that Al Al intend to launch a Japanese food menu, serve Japanese food on flights and make the experience as authentic as possible. Of course the food will be kosher in all departments.
The incident took place in the shadow of the Corona panic in the east and the day the first death case occurred in Japan as a result of the virus infection. However, it is important to note that Japan's health system is one of the most advanced in the world.
