The Government Companies Authority has asked for the delay of the airline's public offering, following the interest of Israeli-Russian businessman David Sapir.

A third potential buyer has contacted the secretariat of El Al Israel Airlines Ltd. (TASE: ELAL) and requested a permit to buy control of the financially troubled airline. Sources inform "Globes" that he is Israeli-Russian businessman David Sapir who controls telecommunications and tourism companies. Sapir joins the two other potential buyers: Eli Rozenberg, the son of New York-based businessman Kenny Rozenberg; and Israeli-UK businessman Eli Gurvitz, the controlling shareholder in real estate company Arazim Investment Ltd. (TASE: AZRM).
