Israel’s US Embassy Warns: If You Want to Leave Israel, Leave Now

Health Alert: U.S. Embassy in Israel - Posted on March 29.

U.S. Embassy located in Jerusalem, Israel.
U.S. Embassy located in Jerusalem, Israel.

As of March 29, the only available commercial flight departing Ben Gurion Airport to the United States is on United Airlines, but it is subject to change at any time.  El Al announced a temporary suspension of flights from March 26 to April 4.  To the best of our knowledge, there are no flights available at this time from Ben Gurion Airport to other destinations which may provide connections to the United States.

U.S. citizens who live in or seek to travel to the United States should arrange for immediate departure to the United States, unless they are prepared to remain in Israel, the West Bank, or Gaza for an indefinite period. Further cancellations and suspensions can occur with little or no warning, making availability limited and unpredictable. Your travel plans may be severely disrupted, and you may be forced to remain outside of the United States for an indefinite timeframe.

The Embassy is not able to assist with arranging commercial travel options. If your travel has been disrupted or to make travel arrangements, please contact your airline: United Airlines (Local: 03-5116787, U.S.: 18002258610) or El Al (Local: 03-9771111)

Please check the U.S. Embassy Jerusalem COVID-19 website for future updates and enroll in the Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) so the U.S. Embassy can contact you with updated information and in an emergency.
