Israeli airline, tourism ministry working on airlift and evacuations

The Israel Ministry of Tourism (IMOT) said it is working with relevant authorities to assist travelers trying to leave Israel as the country’s war with Hamas unfolds. 

IMOT said that although U.S. airlines have suspended flights to Israel, Ben Gurion Airport remains open, and many flights are still departing Israel. 

Israel’s national carrier, El Al, said it has not canceled any flights and has even added more service since the attacks to assist army reservists wanting to return to Israel.

IMOT also said it is working to “ensure their well-being in every way possible.” The agency said it created a “virtual office” reachable via WhatsApp (+972 55 972 6931) or email ([email protected]) and said travelers currently in Israel can dial 104 for information or contact Home Front Command.
