FAA Keeps Tel Aviv Travel Ban In Place

Posted July 23rd, 2014 @ 12:20pm

The FAA will continue to restrict travel to and from Israel's main international airport for at least another day.  A ban on U.S. aircraft landing at or taking off from Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv was issued yesterday after a rocket fired from Gaza landed about a mile away.  The FAA now says it will keep those restrictions in place for at least another 24 hours.  US Airways has already said it plans to resume flights to Tel Aviv tomorrow, pending approval from the FAA.
