American, Delta, and United have resumed flights to Tel Aviv after Israel and Hamas agreed to a cease-fire after rockets were fired at Ben Gurion International Airport.
Delta Air Lines plans to operate its first flight from New York to Tel Aviv since early last week on Friday night, with the first return trip on Sunday. Delta will “closely monitor the security situation and will make adjustments to our flight schedules as necessary,” spokesman Morgan Durrant said.
United Airlines also said it expects to resume service Friday night, with a flight from Newark, New Jersey, to Tel Aviv. A spokeswoman said the airline plans to also resume flights from Chicago and San Francisco over the weekend. United halted flights from all three U.S. cities to Israel on May 12.
American Airlines said it plans to restart New York-Tel Aviv flights on Monday.
Following an 11-day war in which more than 250 people died, mostly Palestinians, the truce between Israel and Hamas appeared to be holding Friday.
