FAA Lifts Flight Restrictions for Tel Aviv Airport

Stockbyte/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) -- The Federal Aviation Administration announced the lifting of restrictions on U.S. airline flights into and out of Israel's Ben Gurion Airport on Wednesday."Before making this decision, the FAA worked with its U.S. government counterparts to assess the security situation in Israel and carefully reviewed both significant new information and measures the Government of Israel is taking to mitigate potential risks to civil aviation," the agency said in a statement.The notice comes after an earlier decision in which the agency renewed a ban on travel to or from Tel Aviv and prohibited air travel to the region for another 24 hours.Initially, the FAA banned flights Tuesday following a rocket strike that landed nearly a mile from the airport."The agency will continue to closely monitor the very fluid situation around Ben Gurion Airport and will take additional actions, as necessary," the FAA added.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);;js.src="";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
