Ovda airport opens to commercial flights

The Ovda military airport in southern Israel opens to commercial flights after Federal Aviation Agency directed all US airlines to cancel all flights to and from Tel Aviv.

The FAA decision came in the wake of a rocket fall in Yehud, close to Ben Gurion Airport. A number of European and Middle Eastern airlines followed suit.
