Lufthansa Group carrier Austrian Airlines plans to restore eight weekly flights to Tel Aviv from 8 January

The 20 weekly flights account for around 30% of its regular schedule to the city.

International airlines pulled services to Tel Aviv following the outbreak of war between Israel and the Gaza-based militant group Hamas in October.

Lufthansa says its continues to monitor the security situation in Israel closely and is in close contact with the local and international authorities. ”Possible flight schedule adjustments must be expected due to changing conditions,” it adds.
