Carriers Thinking Twice About Flights To Israel

 
Posted July 24th, 2014 @ 11:04am

Flights are headed back to Tel Aviv after a ban from the F-A-A is lifted, but that doesn't mean carriers will be headed back right away.

As fighting continues between Israelis and Hamas militants in Gaza, WIOD travel editor Peter Greenburg tells South Florida's First News that an insurance clause called "war risk" is causing carriers to think twice about flying to the region. He says that's a problem because tourism is a huge part of Israel's economy.

Passengers flying to the U-S from Israel are glad to see the ban lifted.

The ban was in place after a rocket hit near Ben Gurion Airport, Tuesday.
