ISTANBUL - Turkish Airlines extended its suspension of flights to Israel for another 24 hours due to security reasons, Communications Minister Lutfi Elvan said on Wednesday.

"We had decided to halt flights to Israel yesterday, now we decided to extend the suspension for another 24 hours because the risk continues," Elvan told reporters.

About 30 US airlines suspended flights to Ben-Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv in accordance with a Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) ban issued on Tuesday which was extended by an additional 24 hours on Wednesday.
