El Al says will allow ticket refund after Ben Gurion Airport closed

Israel’s national carrier El Al says that in light of the closure of Ben Gurion Airport, travelers who bought tickets can get a refund for flights taking off before or on February 15.

The move comes after cabinet ministers approved the near-complete shuttering of the airport until the end of January, amid fears over fast-spreading or vaccine-resistant coronavirus variants entering the country.

The closure will start from midnight Monday-Tuesday and remain in effect at least until Sunday, January 31, when national lockdown measures are set to be eased.
