US Travel/State Department: Israel: Commercial availability remains limited out of Ben Gurion Airport. The U.S. government is facilitating transportation for U.S. citizens; we urge those wishing to leave to take advantage of these charters while they are available.
Please also be aware that the U.S. Government has authorized the departure of family members of U.S. government personnel and some non-emergency personnel on a case-by-case basis from Mission Israel.
Sunday, October 15, U.S. citizens should arrive at Ben Gurion Terminal 3 and look for a table with a U.S. flag where U.S. Embassy personnel will be present to provide further instructions and assistance.
Chartered transportation will be to nearby safe locations, not back to the United States and you may not be able to choose your destination. Seats are on a space available basis. We encourage you to arrive early as you may need to wait for an available flight.
Gaza: The military conflict between Israel and Hamas is ongoing, making identifying departure options for U.S. citizens complex. We are working on potential options for departure from Gaza for U.S. citizens.
