Russian airlines resume flights to Israel
(07-24 16:27)

Russia's second-largest airline Transaero said Thursday it was resuming flights to Israel, two days after suspending traffic along with other major airlines over security concerns.
"As of today, Transaero will operate all services between Russia and Israel according to schedule," the company said in statement.
Transaero turned around one of its flights to Tel Aviv in mid-air on Tuesday after European aviation authorities cautioned against flying to Ben Gurion International Airport, after a Hamas rocket struck a neighbourhood to the north of the airport.
In the United States, the FAA on Thursday lifted its two-day ban on US airlines flying into or out of Ben Gurion International Airport, Israel's only international hub.
