On Tuesday, September 4, the Israel Airports Authority issued a warning to travelers that flights to and from the country could experience significant disruptions (delays, cancelations) in the coming days due to an ongoing Russian naval exercise in the region, which will require some air and sea traffic to be rerouted. The military drill is set to end on the evening (local time) of Saturday, September 8.
These disruptions come at a time when Israel is expecting one of its busiest travel periods of the year ahead of the Rosh Hashanah holiday.
Travelers are advised to confirm the status of their flights prior to departure for the airport and contact their airlines for more information.
