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

  • Aliyah flights are available to Olim awarded the Aliyah flight benefit by the Jewish Agency. Contact your Jewish Agency Shaliach for details.
  • When you receive your Aliyah flight benefit approval from the Jewish Agency, the Nefesh B’Nefesh Flights Dept will invite you to book your flight from the available flight options.
  • There is a ticket processing fee due in advance of a flight confirmation. Any outstanding Aliyah application fees need to be taken care of as well.

Corona Virus Impact

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 your 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 entry permits will be furnished to you prior to your departure.
  • There are health safety measures in place including the requirement for a PCR test prior to your flight’s departure and upon arrival. Online forms must be completed 24 hours before you fly.

Oleh Bought Tickets

Should you choose to purchase your own Aliyah tickets, there is a stringent appeal process for reimbursement. Request information at flightappeal@nbn.org.il

When a Nefesh B’Nefesh Aliyah flight is scheduled a week before or a week after your bought ticket flight, it is not eligible for reimbursement.

In order to provide you with an Israeli government produced entry permit, we require no less than one-weeks’ notice.

Tickets purchased with miles and or points are not eligible for reimbursement.

For more information contact your Nefesh B’Nefesh Aliyah Advisor or email info@nbn.org.il

Questions about flights? Ready to book? Let us know!
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.
