It seems like every day there are changes in Israel’s flight and quarantine policies. The country has flip-flopped so many times on regulations that it’s hard for anyone to keep up.
DDF member @ExGingi flew on Delta from JFK to Tel Aviv yesterday and writes that:
- Delta did not require an exemption paper if an Israeli passport was presented.
- When asked where he would quarantine he just wrote “Jerusalem.”
- Nobody on the flight was forced to go to a quarantine hotel. After taking a COVID test upon arrival he was free to go, despite not having a green passport.
- He was not a fan of the Delta One A330-900neo business class suites as they were too tight and claustrophobic.
Sure enough, a Knesset committee has refused to extend the hotel quarantine order. Because that order has lapsed, Israel will cap the number of daily arrivals to just 200 starting next week, until a new monitoring system can be set up.
