Channel 12 reports that representatives of the Israel Airports Authority and the Ministry of Transport and Road Safety decided to reopen Ben Gurion Airport Terminal 1 on June 1.

After the start of the war, European budget airlines canceled flights to Israel because they had to receive ground services at the more expensive Terminal 3.

In February, the Irish ultra-low-cost airline Ryanair requested Ben Gurion International Airport to provide services at Terminal 3 at the rates of Terminal 1. After the request was denied, Ryanair suspended flights to Tel Aviv, stating that it would resume flights only after Terminal 1 is reopened.

The British budget airline EasyJet also canceled flights to Israel. Although the company did not provide official reasons, Israeli observers speculated that the high service fees at Terminal 3 were one of them.
