FAA extends its ban on Israel flights

The American Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) extends its ban on flights to and from Israel.

Yesterday, the agency barred US airlines from flying to Israel for a period of 24 hours after a rocket hit the city of Yehud, near Ben Gurion Airport. This evening, it reviews the ban and decides to renew it for an additional 24 hours.

Meanwhile, major European airlines such as KLM, Air Berlin, Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, and Swiss Airlines announce that they will continue to halt all flights to Israel.

Lot Polish Airlines says it will not renew its flights to Tel Aviv until Monday.

Of 100-plus airlines that fly to Israel, only 27 are still flying in.
