Meanwhile, El Al announced at the end of the week that due to a drop in demand it will "suspend its operations" on the Johannesburg, South Africa route starting at the end of March. The decision to cancel the route was made against the background of the lawsuit filed by the African country against Israel at The Hague for genocide.
In the meantime, over the last month, the airport began to gradually come back to life, following the return to Israel of airline companies Lufthansa, Swiss, Aegean Airlines, Austrian Airlines and Air France. In addition, the low-cost companies Wizz Air and Ryanair announced that they will partially resume operations in Israel starting in February. The companies Blue Bird, Smart Wings, Tus Airways and Lot Polish Airlines have also announced the resumption of their flights to Israel.
These companies join Fly Dubai, Red Wings, Azimuth Airline, Ethiopian, Air Zena, Etihad Airways, Haiskai, Uzbekistan Airways and Hainan Airlines.
