The Federal Aviation Administration removed its ban on U.S. passenger planes flying to and from Tel Aviv.Now that the ban is lifted, the three U.S. airlines that fly to Israel -- Delta, United and US Airways -- will need to decide when they will resume flights. Bloomberg: 'Devastating' to stop flights U.S. airlines suspend flights to Israel FAA bans flights to Israel for 24 hours Israeli officials have been lobbying Washington to reverse its decision which was put in place after a Hamas rocket struck close to the airport on Tuesday. Other international airlines followed suit, canceling many flights to Israel's Ben Gurion International Airport in the last two days. In a statement released late Wednesday evening, the FAA said it "worked with its U.S. Government counterparts to assess the security situation in Israel and carefully reviewed both significant new information and measures the government of Israel is taking to mitigate potential risks to civil aviation." Also, the European Aviation Safety Agency, which recommended that airlines avoid flying to Tel Aviv, said Thursday that flights to that Israeli city can resume.
