Threat to Ben-Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv, Israel

Today Hamas issued a statement about plans to fire rockets at Tel Aviv's Ben-Gurion International Airport (TLV) and warned airlines not to fly to this airport to avoid injury to civilians and passengers.

To date, this airport has continued a normal schedule. However, air traffic corridors have been narrowed which could cause delays. Travellers should check with their airlines for ongoing updates.

Further, Herzliya’s Sde Dov airfield (SDV), north of Tel Aviv, is closed. The Eilat Airport, which is the Red Sea hotel resort airfield, is closed.
