Notice of air passenger rights in Israel
The rights referred to in this document apply in the following circumstances:
You have been denied boarding involuntarily or your flight is delayed by more than two hours beyond its scheduled departure time or cancelled.
I.- DENIED BOARDING:
The airline, as a policy, does not overbook its flights. However, in the unlikely event that a seat is not available for a passenger with a confirmed reservation, we will seek volunteers to surrender their seats in exchange for benefits that we and the volunteer may agree upon before involuntarily denying boarding to other passengers. If there are insufficient volunteers and we deny you boarding involuntarily, you are entitled to the relevant rights set out in this chapter (same as in the event of flight cancelation), unless your boarding has been denied in circumstances where there are reasonable grounds to deny boarding such as reasons of health, safety, security or inadequate travel documentation.
However, if you are involuntarily denied boarding, and you confirm to an alternative flight the airline is entitled to reduce the compensation sets below in section 1 by 50% provided that the delay in the landing time at the final destination compared with the original landing time does not exceed the scheduled arrival time of the original landing time, as follow:
A) Up to 4 hours in respect of all flights of 2,000 km;
B) Up to 5 hours in respect of all flights between 2,000 km and 4,500 km;
C) Up to 6 hours in respect of all flights over 4,500 km.

The aforementioned provisions do not apply if you refuse to fly on the alternative flight because the alternative flight was not offered to your travel companion(s) or for reasons of security, religion or medical limitations.
IV. FLIGHT SCHEDULE ADVANCE
If your flight has been brought forward at least 5 hours and less than 8 hours, and you had been notified by the flight operator, organizer, or travel agency less than 14 days before the departure date, you will be entitled to reimbursement in the amount paid for the flight ticket, or alternative flight ticket, according to the passenger choice.
