Israel Okays Flights from All Destinations, Coronavirus Passenger Cap Stays
Starting Tuesday, flights to Israel will be allowed from all destinations. The government made the decision during a late-night meeting on Sunday.
Despite effectively opening Israel to the world, the limit of 3,000 passengers entering the country per day will remain.
Under the current airport regulations, valid until March 20, flights could be authorized only from a limited set of cities, including New York, Paris, and Frankfurt. The change is expected to facilitate the return of Israelis abroad who wish to vote in the upcoming March 23 election.
The ministers also considered increasing the cap on daily returnees but decided against it due to the opposition of healthcare officials. (JPost / VFI News)
