News Update


After flights are canceled, a British Airways plane returns to Tel Aviv.

According to BA, flight BA165 has returned to Heathrow after nearly reaching Tel Aviv on Wednesday.

According to an airports authority spokeswoman, rockets were flying around Tel Aviv at the time but did not pose an immediate threat to the flight.

On Wednesday, Virgin Atlantic also canceled flights to the city.

According to a BA representative, the airline’s “highest priority” is safety.

As BA165 approached Tel Aviv, the city’s air raid sirens went out. When British Airways learned of this, they requested that the captain turn around and return to the UK.

“Following the latest assessment of the situation, we’re suspending our flights to and from Tel Aviv,” the airline said.

“We are contacting customers who have booked flights to or from Tel Aviv to apologize for the inconvenience and offer options such as a full refund and rebooking with another airline or British Airways at a later date.”

“We continue to monitor the situation in the region closely.”

Since the Palestinian militant group Hamas struck Israel on Saturday, numerous international airlines have canceled flights to and from Tel Aviv, making it increasingly difficult to book trips.

For example, El Al launched the first nonstop single trip from Tel Aviv to Luton on Friday, October 20, at a cost of $366 (£297).

One travel agency claimed on Tuesday that he had been “inundated” with calls from customers wanting to book tickets back to the UK.

Flights have been canceled by EasyJet, Ryanair, Wizz Air, Air France, Lufthansa, and Emirates.
