British Airways announced on Friday that it will resume its flights to Israel in April, following a suspension in October due to security concerns triggered by the outbreak of war between Israel and Hamas. 

The airline confirmed that flights to Tel Aviv will recommence on April 1st.

The route will operate four times a week using smaller aircraft than those employed before the war, anticipating lower demand, as reported by Agence France-Presse (AFP).

Several airlines had halted flights to Israel at the onset of the conflict, but many, including Air France, Lufthansa, and Ryanair, have since announced the resumption of their services.

The suspension of flights by British Airways and other airlines to Israel in October was a direct response to the escalated conflict between Israel and Hamas, which raised significant security concerns for international air travel to the region.
