MOSCOW, July 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Israel ensures flight safety over its territory despite fighting in Gaza, spokesman for the Israeli Embassy in Moscow Alex Kagalsky said on Friday.
“Our national airline continues flights to Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport. We have also alternative runways in the Negev desert, near Eilat,” Kagalsky said.
The aggravation of military confrontation between the Israeli army and Palestinian radicals has caused mass suspension of international flights to Tel Aviv. On July 22, more than 70 rockets fired from the Gaza Strip exploded in the territory of Israel, including the capital. Moreover, the unstable situation persists around the international airport Ben Gurion. As a result, 15 companies from 10 countries have suspended flights to Israel to date.
It was done after the European Aviation Safety Agency issued warnings about the danger of flying to this region of the Middle East. The agency is expected to make an official statement on this matter that would include “strict recommendations” to all European air carriers.
Among the air carriers that cancelled their flights to Tel Aviv are Brussels Airlines, Air Baltic, Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines, Germanwings, Air France, KLM, Cyprus Airways, Turkish Airlines, Air Serbia and Air Canada.
