airBaltic resumes Israel flight

Take note – story published 9 years ago

Latvian national airline airBaltic will resume its flight to Tel Aviv Saturday, vice-president for corporate communications Janis Vanags told the BNS newswire Friday.

“We’ve made a thorough assessment and in light of many other airlines putting their routes back into service, so will airBaltic,” said the company spokesman.

Vanags pointed out that about 60% of aviation lines to Tel Aviv are currently open, but that airBaltic would continue to closely monitor the situation in Israel as it continues its ongoing military offensive in Gaza amidst heavy Palestinian civilian casualties.

airBaltic had canceled its flights on Wednesday, following the lead of American aviation authorities and a host of other commercial airliners concerned after a Hamas-launched missile landed in the vicinity of Tel Aviv’s international airport.
