Following a risk analysis of the situation in Tel Aviv and intensive consultation, as recommended by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the Lufthansa Group has decided to suspend services to Ben Gurion Airport also tomorrow, Friday, 25 July 2014.
Lufthansa acknowledges the considerable efforts made by Israel to provide the best possible protection for Ben Gurion Airport with the “Iron Dome” shield.
As soon as this protection can be verifiably guaranteed, we will resume flight operations.
This applies to all flights of Lufthansa, Germanwings, Austrian Airlines, Swiss and Brussels Airlines on Friday, 25 July 2014.
Our airlines have a total of 16 flights scheduled from Frankfurt, Munich, Cologne, Zurich, Vienna and Brussels to Tel Aviv tomorrow.
These flights will be cancelled today.
