New Delhi: Air India flights to and from Tel Aviv in Israel will remain suspended till October 14 (Saturday) for the safety of its passengers and crew, the airline spokesperson said Sunday.
“Air India will extend all possible support to passengers who have confirmed bookings on any flight during this period,” the Air India spokesperson added.
Initially, an Air India Flight from New Delhi to Tel Aviv on Saturday and a return flight from Tel Aviv to New Delhi were cancelled in the wake of Hamas attack on Israel.
