As the conflict escalates, airlines cancel or postpone flights to Israel.

As the security situation in Israel worsens, major airlines around the world have cancelled flights or issued travel advisories.

British Airways (BA) has changed its itinerary after Virgin Atlantic warned of cancellations and delays to Tel Aviv.

Meanwhile, three US airlines, as well as Air France, Lufthansa, and Emirates, have canceled flights.

On Monday, Palestinian terrorists Hamas claimed to have launched missiles against Israel’s Ben Gurion airport.

Since Hamas launched its onslaught on Israel on Saturday, about 700 people have been killed in Israel, with another 500 killed in Gaza in retaliatory air strikes.

The Foreign Office advises against all but necessary travel to Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, as well as all travel to specified areas in the region.

From Saturday to Wednesday, Virgin Atlantic announced eight cancellations between Tel Aviv and London Heathrow.

“The safety and security of our customers and our people always comes first and our flying programme to Israel remains under constant review,” stated a spokeswoman for Boeing.

Wizz Air announced that flights to and from Tel Aviv had been canceled till further notice, while EasyJet canceled flights on Sunday and Monday and said it will change its schedule for the remainder of the week.

As rocket assaults continue, Israel imposes a ‘full blockade’ of Gaze.
BA has shifted its daily flights from Heathrow to Tel Aviv to the morning rather than the afternoon. It is understood that this is done to avoid crew spending the night in Israel.

The airline stated that it was monitoring the situation. According to a spokeswoman, a flexible booking policy has been implemented, allowing clients to change their trip dates for free if they so desire.
