QUEENS - Flights to Tel Aviv have resumed from JFK Airport Thursday after the FAA lifted its ban.
The FAA had banned U.S. carriers Tuesday from flying to and from Israel after a rocket strike landed about a mile from Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv. Despite flights resuming, many travelers at JFK Airport say they are still apprehensive about flying into a war zone.
"I don't think that we should be allowing citizens from our country to be flying there," says Skylar Gillispie, of Greenport. "The danger is overwhelming."
Other travelers, especially those who make frequent trips to Israel, say they are confident in U.S. and Israeli airport security to keep them safe.
