German airlines cancel more Tel Aviv flights

BERLIN (AP) — Germany’s two largest airlines say they are not yet resuming flights to Israel even though the European Aviation Safety Agency has lifted a recommendation that airlines refrain from flying to Tel Aviv airport.

Air Berlin says flights to Tel Aviv remain suspended at least through midday Friday, while Lufthansa says all Friday flights to the airport have been canceled because of ongoing security concerns after a Hamas missile landed near it this week.

Lufthansa says it “acknowledges the considerable efforts made by Israel to provide the best possible protection for Ben Gurion Airport” with its missile defense system. It says flights will resume “as soon as this protection can be verifiably guaranteed.”

Lufthansa’s cancellations apply to subsidiaries Germanwings, Austrian Airlines, Swiss and Brussels Airlines as well.
