Last night (Wednesday), we exposed a serious affair here - unknown elements outside the State of Israel are disrupting frequencies and preventing planes from landing using GPS technology, which is very common among pilots who operate most types of planes on all airlines around the world.
In order to solve the problem facing the State of Israel, flights were diverted to land on a certain route at Ben Gurion Airport that passes over the Jerusalem mountains. The same runway allows landing using instrumentation (ILS) located on the ground at Ben Gurion Airport, and allows landing without the need for the use of GPS technology. The technology in question is not found on all runways at the airport, which has limited the use of runways at Ben Gurion Airport in recent months.

Following the exposure of the affair in Israel Hayom, we examined whether the flights to Israel are dangerous. In conversations with senior officials in the Israel Airports Authority and with pilots at Israeli airlines, the answer is clear – flights to Israel are not dangerous. The use of ILS technology does not suffer from interference, is considered very safe in all weather and is a completely safe alternative to GPS landings.
"There is no concern as long as the technology exists. This is a very advanced technology that makes it possible to land the aircraft safely, but it is necessary to resolve the issue in question as soon as possible. There is no doubt that this is a large, unusual incident and an attack that must not happen," an Israeli airline pilot told Israel Hayom.
