MK Rozin: Postpone Open Skies


MK Michal Rozin (Meretz) calls to the PM, "The Open Skies agreement with the EU must be  postponed. Israel cannot put its national airlines in jeopardy. Some 30,000 employees of these companies stand to be dismissed, and strong airlines are an integral component of  the economy. The possibility of their  bankruptcy must be avoided."

The three national airlines are on strike Sunday, protesting the Open Skies agreement with the EU that will end their monopoly on flights to Europe.
