Israeli national airline El Al said there was "no chance" it would suspend service after several European airlines cancelled flights and the FAA issued a ban on flights to and from Israel.

All US airlines were prohibited from flying to Ben Gurion, while the European Aviation Safety Agency issued a "strong recommendation" for airlines to avoid Tel Aviv.

Air France, KLM, Lufthansa, and Swiss Airlines have suspended flights for the time being.
