Transportation Minister Merav Michaeli holds an urgent meeting to discuss the ongoing chaos at Ben Gurion Airport, where passengers are forced to wait hours in line due to a manpower shortage.

According to Channel 12 news, Michaeli says that she does not intend to limit or cut the number of flights to deal with the overcrowding — because she believes such a move would only increase already high flight prices.

Michaeli reportedly calls on the Israel Airports Authority — which has claimed it has been unable to enlist the necessary workers — to consider creative solutions.
