The Transportation Ministry is considering the possibility of extending the runway at the airport in Haifa and to prepare the airport to serve as a substitute for international flights coming into Ben Gurion International Airport.

Transportation Minister Israel Katz said at a conference on civil aviation that the fog that disrupted Ben Gurion Airport's activities on Tuesday demonstrated the importance of establishing a second international airport in Israel.
