Air Canada's Toronto-Tel Aviv Flight Resumes

TORONTO - Air Canada is resuming flights to Tel Aviv after a two-day halt prompted by security concerns over rocket attacks near Israel's main airport.

The airline says Flight AC84 is leaving Toronto for Tel Aviv at 6:10 p.m. today as scheduled.

The Federal Aviation Administration also lifted its ban on U.S. flights in and out of Israel late last night.

All three U.S. airlines serving Israel resumed flights to Tel Aviv today.

Air Canada (TSX:AC.B) spokeswoman Isabelle Arthur says the decision to resume flights to Tel Aviv is based on the airline's "own assessment" and that of "regulators of the situation."

She says flights to and from Tel Aviv today and Friday will use planes that can take 138 more people to accommodate those affected by flight cancellations.

Flights to Tel Aviv were suspended Tuesday after a rocket landed less than two kilometres from the city's Ben Gurion International Airport.
