Ben-Gurion International Airport's jet fuel supply was deemed safe for usage on Sunday, allaying earlier fears that a fuel dilution problem may lead to canceled flights, Israel Radio reported.

Airport authorities were scheduled to check the fuel supply again on Monday as a cautionary measure.

Despite the announcement, some foreign airlines chose to fill their airplanes with enough fuel at outside airports to avoid using fuel at Ben-Gurion, according to the Israel Radio report.
