Several international air carriers have suspended flight services with Tel Aviv in light of the Hamas surprise attack on Israel, citing reasons they were waiting for safety conditions to improve before resuming.
On Sunday, US air carriers United Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and American Airlines said they had suspended direct flights, as did Air France.
Amma said it had run two scheduled flights to the United States from Israel late on Saturday and early on Sunday but had suspended services ‘until conditions allow them to resume.
Delta representatives said flights have been canceled for this week while they monitor the situation to make necessary schedule changes. Hainan Airlines, the only Chinese airline to fly between China and Israel, canceled flights between Tel Aviv and Shanghai on Monday, citing the security situation in Israel.
It also operates flights between Beijing and Tel Aviv as well as the southern tech hub of Shenzhen and Tel Aviv. The airline said it would adjust future flight plans depending on the situation. Cathay Pacific, which said it also canceled its flight between Hong Kong and Tel Aviv on Tuesday, is to provide further updates about the next flight on Thursday.
Korean Air said it canceled its Monday flight between the port city of Incheon and Tel Aviv and expects future flights to be irregular.
