EL-AL has suspended flights between isranel and istanbul. due to a dispute with airport security in istanbul.
as Turkey is the most touristit holiday destination for the israeli, ther are 100s of them stranded... how will they get back to israel/turkey... will EL-AL be liable for all the flight transfers ?

El-Al makes sure that all its passengers on the canceled flights will have alternate flights.
Up to now 2 flights were canceled, the last Thursday flight and this evening (Saturday) flight.
The suspension is for all the Israelis companies and not just El-Al.
Everybody hopes that tomorrow that problem will be solved.




Long live the B747

El Al suspended all its flight from Tel Aviv to Istanbul because the Turkish authorities refused permission to the company to continue its security procedures at Ataturk International Airport.

Relations between Turkey and Israel right now have never been lower.

Turkey strongly condemned the recent demolition of homes in Rafah by Israeli forces. This caused Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul to label Israel as a "terrorist state."

The current troubles between Turkey and Israel may be the reason why Ataturk Int'l authorities refused to allow El Al to continue its tough airport security procedures, possibly to intentionally make them stop flying to Istanbul....

Are any other Turkish destinations affected or is it only Istanbul?

LY, Arkia, Israir and Sun dor use mostly 757, though 737 are flown as well.
Turkish use both 310 and 737. Other turkish charters (MNG pax and Sky) fly 737-200.

According to Maariv daily newspaper Sun Dor and Israir will resume flights to Antalya this evening. Since Sun Dor is using LY crews and equipment I hope that LY is one step away from resuming service to IST as well. (Apparently the security problem was only an issue in IST )
