Earlier today, U.S. airlines awaited the decision of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to allow them to resume flights to Tel Aviv, Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport.
Now, the FAA has responded that while flights to Tel Aviv will be extended for another 24 hours, flights will resume by 12:15 p.m. ET Thursday, as reported by CNN.
Just a day earlier, U.S. airlines had suspended their flights after a rocket fell about a mile away from the Israeli airport. Several major airlines immediately canceled service, some even had to divert planes midflight. Several European airlines did the same.
Today, despite a number of cancellations, Ben-Gurion was expecting a total of 206 flights.
