The severe storms that have been plaguing Europe have caused cancellations and delays in flights to and from Israel in the last two days.

Flights between Tel Aviv and London, England were canceled and flights to other destinations in the continent were delayed by several hours.

The Israel Airports Authority Spokesman said that Ben Gurion Airport had experienced slightly above normal activity due to the flight delays, but that most of the passengers had contacted their airlines ahead of departure and avoided long waits.

“We did experience some problems in incoming and outgoing flights, but I think the worst of it is now behind us,” said the spokesman.
