Since the terrorist organization Hamas attacked Israel, the Lufthansa Group's scheduled flights to/from Tel Aviv have been paused. The resumption was repeatedly postponed for security reasons. Now the group wants to return to Israel's largest airport from January 8, 2024.

Initially, only a greatly reduced flight schedule will be offered. Lufthansa will offer four roundtrips per week from Frankfurt and three from Munich. Austrian Airlines plans to fly to Tel Aviv eight times a week from Vienna-Schwechat. Swiss will offer five weekly connections from Zurich. In total there should be around 20 flights per week to/from Tel Aviv. According to Lufthansa, this corresponds to around 30 percent of the regular flight schedule. Initially, the Kranich Group airlines want to fly with the Airbus A320.

The Lufthansa Group airlines suspended their scheduled flights to and from Tel Aviv on October 9, 2023. The flights to Beirut (Lebanon), which were also suspended, were resumed on December 15, 2023 by Lufthansa, Swiss and Eurowings. “Safety is always the top priority for the Lufthansa Group airlines. The Lufthansa Group continues to closely monitor the security situation in Israel and is in close contact with the local and international authorities. Any flight plan adjustments must be expected as conditions change,” explains the Kranich Group in a press release.
