The US Federal Aviation Administration issued a rare 24-hour ban on all flights from America to Israels only public international airport on Tuesday afternoon, following reports that a rocket fired by Palestinian militants landed near the airport. Only three US airliners have service to Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv — Delta, United and US Airways — meaning that all American flights to the country are effectively grounded for at least a day during the height of tourism season, as The New York Times points out. Several European airlines, including Air France and Lufthansa out of Germany, also said they were temporarily halting flights to Ben Gurion following the FAA ban, as the Times of Israel reported.
