Nefesh B’Nefesh and the Jewish Agency for Israel’s flight benefit includes a one-way ticket on an Aliyah eligible flight.

While adherence to health safety measures has required a streamlining in the types of flight options available, Nefesh B’Nefesh is working behind the scenes to assure a smooth landing at Ben Gurion.

  • Your Aliyah file, including required documents, will be prepared and presented to Misrad HaKlita ahead of your scheduled arrival
  • The most updated Israeli permits to enter Israel will be furnished to you prior to your departure
  • When booking 2 weeks in advance, an NBN Flight Care Kit will be mailed to your current residence

Please note:

  • Free Aliyah flights are available to Olim awarded the Aliyah flight benefit by the Jewish Agency.  Contact your Jewish Agency Shaliach for details.
  • For more information contact your Nefesh B’Nefesh Aliyah Advisor or email
  • Nefesh B’Nefesh does not reimburse Olim who purchase their own tickets.
  • When you receive your Aliyah flight benefit approval from the Jewish Agency, the Nefesh B’Nefesh Flights Dept will reach out to you to discuss your flight options.

DISCLAIMER: Aliyah flights must be arranged via Nefesh B’Nefesh in order to utilize the Aliyah Flight Benefit. Once you submit your flight preferences and have the necessary approvals and documentation, we will assist you with booking your Aliyah flight. We will do our best to accommodate your first flight preference; however, we cannot guarantee that all Olim will receive their first choice. Nefesh B’Nefesh has the right to withdraw any of these flight options at any time. Should that occur, NBN will assist you in making alternate flight arrangements. Depending on the time of year in which you make Aliyah, not all of the options noted above may be available. If you cancel your reservation or change your flight fees may apply.
