Iranian attack on Israel: Easyjet suspends flights to and from Tel Aviv

The decision was made to ensure the “safety and security” of our passengers. British airline Easyjet announced on Monday it would suspend flights “to and from Tel Aviv” as the world awaits Israel’s response to the unprecedented attack carried out by Iran overnight.

“Due to the evolving situation in Israel, Easyjet has decided to temporarily suspend flights to and from Tel Aviv until April 21,” the airline announced on Monday in a statement sent to AFP.

Affected customers contacted by the company

“The safety of our passengers and crew is always Easyjet’s top priority,” it added, adding that it had contacted customers on flights affected by these cancellations via SMS and email. Easyjet had already canceled its rotation between London Luton Airport and Tel Aviv on Sunday, a company spokesman told AFP.

Iran launched hundreds of drones and missiles towards Israeli territory on Saturday night in response to an April 1 strike on the consular annex of the Iranian embassy in Damascus, Syria, attributed to Israel. Almost all the missiles and drones were destroyed before they hit Israeli territory. This was Iran’s first direct attack on Israel.

German airline Lufthansa had already announced on Sunday that it was suspending its flights to and from Tel Aviv, as well as Erbil in Iraq and Amman in Jordan until Monday, “in the context of the current situation.”
