VSbulletin CONVOID-19- Suspension of Tel Aviv Service 

Virgin Atlantic have recently announced:

We continue to monitor the Covid-19 situation very carefully, including the latest guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), as well as any new entry or quarantine restrictions implemented by the countries we fly to.

 

The Israeli Authorities have advised that from 12 March they will deny entry to all international travellers unless they can prove they will be placed in home quarantine for 14 days after their arrival. As a result, we have taken the decision to temporarily suspend our services between London Heathrow and Tel Aviv. We’d like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.
