Israel has been in touch with the United States, Russia and international aviation authorities over the past two weeks in an effort to prevent them from canceling flights to Israel amid an escalation in fighting with the Gaza Strip.

An internal Civil Aviation Authority document reveals that the country is taking pains to avoid flight cancelations, despite rockets being fired from Gaza into Israel and the Israel Defense Forces operation in the Strip.


The document, signed by CAA Director General Giora Romm, describes what has been happening behind the scenes:

“The Civil Aviation Authority has been in contact with international aviation bodies,” it says, “For example, it has been in ongoing contact with the upper echelon of the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration - the FAA - and with Russia, via the Russian transportation minister.
