    A Boeing 737 jet flew 4,000 KM with just one passenger on board. Israel's national airline El Al flew the plane from Tel Aviv to Casablanca to pick up a passenger for medical treatment.

    The flight, which can usually carry around 160 passengers in a two-class format, carried one passenger. According to the data from the website FlightRadar24, the plane LY5051 left Tel Aviv Ben Gurion airport at 2:20 PM and landed in Casablanca at 5:22 PM. Later in the evening, the plane left at 7:10 PM and landed at Tel Aviv just before 3 AM.  

    According to the reports, the plane carried the passenger for medical treatment in Israel. The flight was organised by Madassis Medical Flights, which also "brought an intensive care team and advanced medical equipment to the plane, overseen by Dr Ami Mayo, Assuta Intensive Care Manager and the company's medical director."

    The reports further added that the Israeli businessman paid for everything. It is to be mentioned that medical intensive care flights usually cost the sick passenger and his/her attendants. However, not every company/aircraft can make such a flight due to medical equipment, a permit for an RTA pilot and other matters related to air pressure, etc.
