An El Al Boeing 737-800, registration 4X-EKR performing flight LY-563 from Tel Aviv (Israel) to Warsaw (Poland) with 138 people on board, was climbing through FL250 out of Tel Aviv when the crew stopped the climb due to a low oil pressure indication on their right hand engine (CFM56). The crew shut the engine down and returned to Tel Aviv for a safe landing on runway 12 about 40 minutes after departure.

A replacement Boeing 737-800 registration 4X-EKS reached Warsaw with a delay of 7.5 hours.

Initial official information suggested the crew returned to Tel Aviv reporting a hydraulic failure. On Apr 30th 2019 The Aviation Herald received updated authoritative information from multiple sources reporting the low oil pressure on the right hand engine.
