Following Israel's retaliatory attack on Iran, several foreign airlines have canceled flights to Ben Gurion Airport, while others suspended the flights.
The Lufthansa Group, comprising Lufthansa, Swiss International Air Lines, and Brussels Airlines, which had already resumed flights to Israel after suspending them due to the Iranian attack last week, canceled its flights to Israel again until Saturday at 08:00.

LOT Polish Airlines, Poland's flag carrier, announced the cancellation of its planned flights to Tel Aviv and Beirut. The company will monitor developments and decide later whether to resume flights.
On Thursday, Air Canada announced that it would not return to fly to Ben Gurion Airport until June. The Canadian national airline, which resumed flights to Israel earlier this month after, like most foreign airlines, ceasing operations to the country shortly after the start of the war, was operating a daily flight to Toronto. At this point, it is unclear if the company will renew the route to Tel Aviv in June.
