FAA Lifts Ban on Flights into Ben Gurion Airport

Hosted by

The FAA and the European Aviation Safety Agency have lifted their bans on flights in and out of Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion airport — the international gateway to Israel. For 24 hours, planes were turning around, and travelers were stranded at the height of the travel season. Hamas was declaring a victory. Israel was outraged. Ruth Eglash is based in Jerusalem for the Washington Post.
