Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines said it is resuming its daily flights to Israel, after “careful internal consideration and input from high levels in government.”
Delta said it will restart its service from New York to Tel Aviv on Thursday evening, following Tuesday’s suspension of service.
Delta said the Federal Aviation Administration has advised the airline that Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion International Airport is safe for operations. The FAA late Wednesday evening lifted its ban on flights to Ben Gurion.
“The safety and security of customers and employees is always Delta’s top priority,” Delta said in a written statement.
