Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Israel: Finnair Extends Tel Aviv Cancellations Until March 2024…
On the cancellation of services into Tel Aviv, Israel, Finnair said the following on this:
“Finnair is canceling all flights to Tel Aviv until March 30, 2024 due to the unstable situation in Israel. Flights are canceled throughout the winter season.”
“Safety is always our top priority. We are closely monitoring the situation and following the instructions of the authorities.”
“The Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs has published a travel bulletin in which the ministry urges you to avoid unnecessary travel to Israel.”
“Finnair does not use Israeli airspace on its flights at the moment. We are sorry for the harm and worry this situation may cause you.”
This appears to be the airline with the longest flight cancellation extension so far on services into Tel Aviv, Israel.
The airline has said that they will do their “best to re-route you to your destination as soon as possible” noting “that in the current situation, the availability of alternative flights is very limited”.
They also said that in the event that this cannot be arranged, that refunds are accessible for customers.
This remains a developing story as there is the potential for this to be extended further depending on the current conditions in the region.
