The Government of Israel on 03 May 2021 banned travelling to seven countries, including South Africa, over fears of importing Covid-19 variants. The new measures forces the country's flag carrier, El Al, to cancel its plans to resume flights to Johannesburg in South Africa until further notice. The airline planned to re-introduce scheduled services between Ben Gurion Airport (TLV) in Tel Aviv and OR Tambo International Airport (JNB) in Johannesburg from 06 May 2021. According to El Al's website, the airline will now only offer one flight between Tel Aviv and Johannesburg on 06 May 2021 and a return service from Johannesburg to Tel Aviv on 08 May 2021.
