Security Alert: U.S. Embassy Jerusalem (May 13, 2021)
Event: Airport and Flights Status
Rockets continue to impact the Gaza periphery and areas across Southern and Central Israel. Flights to and from airports in Israel may be suspended or rerouted by the Israeli government at any time. Airlines may also cancel their flights with little or no warning, making availability limited and unpredictable. Flight arrivals and departures have been subject to frequent change and we anticipate that continuing to be the case.
Unfortunately, the embassy is not able to assist with arranging commercial travel options. U.S. citizens in Israel are encouraged to contact their airline directly for the most up to date information.
