      El Al to End Night Flights to Eilat

      As of November 18th, El Al will no longer be offering night flights to Eilat, after already having cancelled the daytime flights. The decision follows the Civilian Aviation Authority's announcement that as of today take-offs and landings will only take place on its new flight path.

      El Al says it hopes that the decision will be reversed, but that at this time the Civil Aviation Authority had changed the night flight path, which El Al had already delineated as lacking the appropriate safety standards.
