More than 1,000 Israeli passengers arrived to Ben-Gurion Airport on Friday night after they were stranded in Turkey due to the country's ban on flights to and from Tel Aviv, Army Radio reported Saturday.

Since Thursday, some 3,000 travelers have been airlifted to Israel via Greece on specially-chartered El Al and Arkia planes.

Turkey has still not lifted its suspension of flights to Israel, which was initiated on Tuesday.
