FAA continues ban on U.S. flights to Tel Aviv

ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — The Federal Aviation Administration says it will continue its ban on U.S. airline flights to Tel Aviv while assessing the danger of rocket attacks.

The agency said today it is working closely with the Israeli government to review new information they have provided and to determine whether safety concerns have been resolved.

FAA instituted the flight prohibition on Tuesday in response to a rocket strike that landed about a mile from the airport.

The directive applies only to U.S. operators, and has no authority over foreign airlines operating to or from the airport.
