American Airlines & Delta Cancel All Tel Aviv Ben Gurion Services: United Followed Suit…
United Airlines followed the same suit that American & Delta have today, but this emerged more clearly yesterday.
United flight UA954 departed San Francisco at 2025 local time on Friday and was making good ground to Tel Aviv, Israel, before a decision was made to return to the U.S. as conditions worsened.
At the time of writing (7/10/23 @ 1620 UK time), the aircraft is still in the air and is getting closer to the West Coast-based airport.
Numerous airlines have canceled services in Tel Aviv Ben Gurion Airport following the current tensions and fighting going on in Israel.
It is expected that more airlines will follow suit in the coming days, but airlines such as Turkish Airlines, El Al, TAROM, and others have been providing additional flights to evacuate Israeli citizens from the region.
Attempts have also been made by Hamas to attack Ben Gurion Airport, although operations continue to operate at the time of writing (08/10/23 @ 2256 UK time).
