Turkey lifts block on flights to Ben Gurion Airport Ban on Turkish carriers flying to Israeli airport lifted until further notice

ANKARA (AA) – The Turkish aviation authority has lifted a ban on its national carriers flying to Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport until further notice following the announcement of a 12-hour ceasefire between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.

The Civil Aviation directorate made the announcement on its official Twitter account on Saturday.

The Turkish Ministry of Transportation, Maritime Affairs and Communications’ General Directorate of Civil Aviation (SHGM) had restricted flights on July 23 following a rocket attack that struck roughly one mile from the airport in Tel Aviv.
