Passengers should be able to fly to and from Israel today.

El Al, Easyjet and British Airways have all resumed flights to Israel today after the disruption to air traffic meant many Israelis missed Yom Ha’atzmaut celebrations.

Of the two El Al flights due to leave Heathrow today, one will carry passengers originally booked on the flight and one has been cancelled. Two additional flights have been arranged for today departing from Luton.

Both the Easyjet flights to Tel Aviv from London Luton will run as normal but all online boarding has been cancelled and all passengers must now check in at the airport.

Both British Airways flights from Heathrow are scheduled as normal.

All airlines are advising passengers to keep checking the situation before departing.
