Following today’s announcement from the FAA that it is extending it’s U.S. flight ban to Israel – Air Canada has cancelled tonight’s flight to and from Tel Aviv – from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.
This is the second day in a row that the airline has cancelled its Israel flight – due to the ongoing conflict in Gaza.
Air Cnada says it will continue to evaluate the situation and provide updates.
The FAA directive says the ban now runs through 12:15 p.m. Eastern time – Thursday.
