Israel Seeking to Restart Flights to Greece and Cyprus

(Bloomberg) --

Israel has set a target of Aug. 1 to restart commercial flights to neighboring Greece and Cyprus, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday.

Reopening Israel’s skies “depends on what’s going to happen with the pandemic, but if the numbers allow it, this is the target,” Netanyahu said in Jerusalem, during a meeting with Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

Israel began halting international flights in February as it placed restrictions on the economy to stem the spread of the coronavirus.
