KLM will again operate flights to the Israeli city of Tel Aviv on Tuesday 25 May, a spokesman said on Sunday.

A condition for this is that the Israelis and the Palestinians, who agreed on a ceasefire on the night from Thursday to Friday, adhere to the truce.

KLM decided to cancel flights on May 11 because of the conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians.

A risk assessment later that week revealed that the situation was not yet safe enough to resume flights.

The Palestinians have recently bombarded Israel with hundreds of missiles, while Israel launched air strikes on the Gaza Strip.

Due to the unrest, air traffic to and from Ben Gurional International Airport had to be stopped several times.

Flights were also diverted to Cyprus.
