Does El Al open their check-in desks before Shabbat ends?

I'm taking LY26 EWR-TLV on a Saturday. The flights departs at 10pm, which is of course after Shabbat ends. I am not Shomer Shabbat and plan to get the airport 3 hours early, like any international flight. Shabbat ends at 7:47pm. Will El Al have their ticketing counters open before that or will I be stuck landside with my bags in Newark?
