Hebrew media clarifies the situation with Israel-China flights after today’s decision by Israel’s Health Ministry to bar all flights from China amid a global effort to contain a virulent coronavirus spreading in central China.
According to the latest information, two more flights will land in Israel from China tonight and tomorrow morning — and will be the last flights until at least March 25.
A Hainan Airlines flight grounded in Beijing before it could take off has now been released. It will land in Israel overnight.
A second flight, by the Israeli airline El Al, will take off tonight and land in Israel tomorrow morning. It carries 100 passengers.
