The Israeli Airport Authority announced that flights are suspended at Ben Gurion International Airport due to an ongoing strike.

Key Points:

  • The strike is set to continue in Israel until further notice; it is unknown when operations will resume at Ben Gurion International Airport.
  • Individuals with travel plans departing from the airport should expect delays and may need to arrange alternative plans for the duration of the strike.
  • Employers may need to adjust their timelines if their employees are among those affected by the flight suspension.

BAL Analysis: Flights were suspended at the airport in response to a strike against the government’s intended judicial reform.
