Following the war in Gaza, United Arab Emirates airlines - Etihad Airways and Play Dubai - have canceled their flights to Israel. The two companies are thus joining airlines from the United States and Europe, which canceled their flights to Ben Gurion Airport last week.



Itihad, which is based in Abu Dhabi and began flying regularly to Israel last month, suspended all passenger and cargo services to Tel Aviv from Sunday (tomorrow), according to the company's website. "Etihad is monitoring the situation in Israel and continues to maintain close contact with the authorities and security intelligence providers," it was written.



Similarly, Dubai's low-cost carrier, Flydubai, which began flying to the country last November, is canceling its flights from Dubai from Sunday, although two flights operated on Saturday. According to its website, other flights are scheduled for next week.



Play Dubai recently operated only two daily flights out of its original four daily flights, indicating a decline in demand for a destination that was hot for tens of thousands of Israelis last year.

Cruise sailing is also canceled

Meanwhile, the shipping giant https://travel.walla.co.il/item/2849305 has canceled the cruises of the cruise ship "Odyssey Of The Seas" from Haifa to Cyprus and Greece, scheduled for this summer. Some of the crew members who were on board, reported that the news was announced by the ship’s captain using the ship’s public address system. "The decision comes as a result of the escalating conflict between Israelis and Palestinians," the Crow Center website, which deals with shipping, said.



The ship "Odyssey Of The Seas" is currently sailing in Limassol, Cyprus, and was scheduled to arrive at the port of Haifa this month with its crew ahead of the start of cruises on June 2 and until September. This is the new flagship of the largest sailing corporation in the world, and Israel was supposed to be the first country from which cruises to the destinations of the Mediterranean Basin had to start.



In March, Royal Caribbean announced cruises for vaccinated Israeli residents, which will include both the ship's crew and guests over the age of 16 who are vaccinated against the corona virus.

The ship's crew was supposed to be vaccinated in Haifa on May 7, but the vaccine was canceled several times, and now the team will be vaccinated in the United States.
