Low-Cost British Airline Voids Tickets of British ‘Flytilla’

The Guardian reported that Israel has forced the low-cost airline Jet2.com to revoke the tickets of three women from Manchester who were on their way to Bethlehem via Ben Gurion airport this weekend to participate in an assembly of anti-Iaraeli activists.

The three women received emails from Jet2.com informing them that the airline will not carry them and there will be no refund. Israel has been pressuring airlines to ban “known activists,” according to the Guardian.

One of the women, retired nurse Norma Turner, told the Guardian, “It never crossed my mind that Israel could stop people with British passports leaving British airports.”

Israel says it will block the hundreds of activists who are expected at Tel Aviv airport on Sunday, on their way to a week of “educational and cultural activities” in the PA controlled areas of Judea and Samaria.

As many as 2,000 European activists were planning to participate in the “flytilla,” a reference to the boat flotillas that have tried to reach Gaza in the past.

The German airline Lufthansa has also cancelled the tickets of many activists, on Thursday, in compliance with Israeli demands, and other airlines are expected to follow suit.

  1. Lisbet Soda says:

    To the nurse who thinks Israel is keeping her from leaving British airports – HOGWASH! Just don't expect to board a plane that is schedculed to land in Tel Aviv. Has she never heard of terrorists being banned from airlines before? What makes her think she is any different. She can go anywhere in the world but Israel has a right to keep her out.
