Ben Gurion Airport to Close Tomorrow

The Ben Gurion Airport will close from 8 AM until 5 PM on Thursday, airport officials announced Wednesday night. Pilots and air control tower operators shut the airport down repeatedly on Wednesday in protest of radio frequency interference.

Airport Director-General Gabi Ophir compared the interference to “working with your eyes closed.” He called on all national bodies to deal with the issue immediately, saying “there’s no need to wait for a disaster in order to act.”
