Air Canada has decided to cancel all of its direct flights to and from Tel Aviv through the end of the month, reports say.

The suspension, which took effect on Oct. 8, comes after Hamas’s attack on Israel earlier this month – a move that sparked retaliatory airstrikes.

Canada’s largest airline says it’s monitoring the conflict and will resume its flights from Toronto and Montreal once the situation stabilizes.

A flexible rebooking and refund policy has been put in place (click here to view).

Before the war began, Air Canada flew to Tel Aviv from Toronto daily, and from Montreal three times per week.

The crisis in Israel began early Saturday morning on Oct. 7 after Hamas militants, which are listed as terrorist entities by Public Safety Canada, fired rockets and infiltrated towns along the Gaza Strip.

Last Friday (Oct. 13), Air Canada announced it would operate two special flights from Athens to Toronto on Oct. 13 and 14 in coordination with the Government of Canada to bring Canadians and permanent residents home from Israel.
