Emirates airline has decided to extend the suspension of all its flights to and from Israel until November 14. Initially, the airline had paused these flights until October 20, and then it was extended to October 26.
Emirates, based in Dubai, has three flights daily to Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport. They are closely monitoring the situation amid the Israel-Palestine war and are in touch with the authorities to ensure the safety of their passengers, crew, and stakeholders.
Emirates authorities said that they are in constant communication with the appropriate authorities and are keeping a close eye on the situation in Israel. Emirates stated on its website that “the safety of our customers, crew, and stakeholders is our number one priority.”
“Booking agents should be contacted by customers impacted by the suspension for any changes, refunds, cancellations, or rescheduling of their flight schedules. For travel through November 30, 2023, tickets issued on or before October 11, 2023, will be free of change and cancellation fees, the statement continued.
Flydubai reduced their daily return flights to and from Tel Aviv from four to two, and they are closely watching the situation. Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways confirmed that their daily flight to Israel is still operating as scheduled.
