PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- US Airways wants to offer year-round service between Philadelphia and Tel Aviv, Israel.
The Tempe, Ariz.-based airline announced Tuesday it is applying to start service in July 2009, subject to approval by the U.S. and Israeli officials.
The airline will offer one daily nonstop flight.
The Tel Aviv route would be the longest nonstop segment in the US Airways network. Longer-range Airbus A330-200 aircraft set for delivery in spring 2009 will operate on the route.
US Airways began service from Philadelphia to London's Heathrow airport in March 2008.
