British Airways announces that it will resume flights to Israel in April, having suspended them in October citing security fears after the October 7 massacre carried out by Hamas in Israel and the outbreak of the war in Gaza.

The airline, which is owned by London-listed aviation conglomerate IAG, says it will “restart our flights on 1 April” to Tel Aviv.

The route will operate four times per week but with smaller aircraft than before the outbreak of war, owing to expectations of weaker demand.

Many airlines stopped flying to Israel after October 7, but several have since announced their resumption — including Air France, Lufthansa and Ryanair.
