The Israel Airports Authority spokesman said Tuesday that the authority has not undertaken any sort of special arrangements to deal with the volcano ash cloud and that the authority does not foresee it being a problem for Israeli aviation.

"Of course we have our finger on the pulse and are watching what is happening, but the cloud is too high and isn't moving in our direction. Of course, there can always be surprises, but there's no reason to worry in the meantime," the spokesman said.

The spokesman added that Israeli aviation fears are further tempered by the very low number of relevant flights passing through the area of the ash cloud.
