The Jet2.com airline canceled the tickets of three Manchester women that had intended on participating in the upcoming "flytilla", the Guardian reported Friday.

Pro-Palestinian activists are attempting to land en masse at Ben-Gurion Airport on Sunday to protest Israeli policy vis a vis the Palestinians.

Jet2.com informed the women by email that the airline would refuse to carry them and no refund would be paid, according to the Guardian.

The cancellation follows a similar move by Lufthansa German Airlines, which has already informed dozens of ticket-holders that they would be barred from flying to Israel. The Lufthansa customers will be refunded for their purchases.
