Turkey Demands Further Restrictions on Israeli Cargo Flights



Israel’s Civil Aviation Authority is examining a new demand by Turkey that it report, 10 days in advance and through diplomatic channels, any Israeli flight that intends to pass through Turkey’s territorial airspace and contains hazardous cargo.

According to Israel Hayom, the Transportation Ministry said that CAL Cargo Air Lines, which operates cargo flights to Belgium and the U.S. from Israel, received the demand from Turkish authorities and relayed it to the ministry.

Almost all cargo flights from Israel pass through Turkish airspace and they almost always include materials that can be defined as hazardous.
Relations between the once-steadfast regional allies have chilled in recent years.
