Isaac Kaul, former state-run phone company Bezeq CEO, and Iti Eiges, former director general of the Transport Ministry, are the new names mentioned as candidates to replace El Al CEO David Hermesh, who announced his resignation last week.
Today is the final date for submitting candidacies.
Other potential candidates mentioned include Nira Dror, local manager of British Airways, Mayor Caspi, former CEO of Natour Travel Agents Association for Organized Tours, and General (Res.) Eytan Ben Eliyahu, former chief of the Israeli air force.
The candidacy of Arkia CEO Israel Borovich has turned out to be irrelevant.
A special committee headed by the national airline's Chairman Michael Levy is to convene next week in order to start the selection process.
