Ben Gurion Airport
United Airlines will be the first U.S. carrier to resume flights to Israel after a two-day hiatus caused by combat in the Gaza Strip.
In a statement Wednesday, the FAA said it is “working closely with the Government of Israel” to review new information they have provided and to determine whether safety concerns have been resolved.
The U.S. and European carriers decided to halt flights to Israel Tuesday after a rocket landed near Ben Gurion Airport outside Tel Aviv, but some carriers based outside the U.S. went on flying.
Israeli police on Friday arrested a U.S. citizen who flew to Israel after allegedly stabbing his parents to death in their Staten Island home earlier this week.
