BRUSSELS: Brussels Airlines said on Thursday that it will restart flights to Israel from March 24. Like many other carriers, the Belgian airline stopped flying to Israel after the Oct. 7 attack by Hamas.

The decision to resume flights was made “after careful consideration with all relevant departments,” it said in a statement.

The carrier, which is a subsidiary of Germany’s Lufthansa , will begin by operating three flights per week from Brussels to Tel Aviv.
