Though Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport is currently operating as usual, various airlines have temporarily suspended operations to and from Israel, due to the war between Hamas and Israel which began on the morning of October 7 when Hamas terrorists fired barrages of rockets at Israeli communities, kidnapped at least 212 Israelis, and massacred 1,400 civilians, including infants and children.
Israel’s Civil Aviation Authority published a list detailing which airlines have canceled their flights from Ben Gurion, including Delta, United, American Airlines, Air Canada, Air India, Lufthansa, LOT, Swiss Air Lines, Turkish Airlines, Air France, British Airways, and others.
Among the airlines which continue flying to and from Tel Aviv are El Al, Israir, Arkia, Flydubai, Etihad, TUS, Blue Bird, and others.
