Air Canada resumes flights to Tel Aviv cancelled after rocket strike
TORONTO - Air Canada is resuming flights to Tel Aviv after a two-day halt prompted by security concerns over rocket attacks near Israel's main airport.
The airline says Flight AC84 is leaving Toronto for Tel Aviv at 6:10 p.m. today as scheduled.
The Federal Aviation Administration also lifted its ban on U.S. flights in and out of Israel late last night, but some carriers, including American Airlines and Delta, say they are still evaluating their plans.
Air Canada spokeswoman Isabelle Arthur says the decision to resume flights to Tel Aviv is based on the airline's "own assessment" and that of "regulators of the situation."
She says Air Canada (TSX:AC.B) has also consulted others in the airline community.
Flights to Tel Aviv were suspended Tuesday after a rocket landed 1.6 kilometres from the city's Ben Gurion International Airport.
