Israel to ban 4-engine airliners including all Boeing 747s

Israel through its Airport Authority is planning to ban all four-engined aircraft including the Boeing 747s as of March 31, 2023.

The ban is a response to growing concerns about air pollution.

Airlines will not be able to use these aircraft for the next summer season.

El Al Israel Airlines has already retired its Boeing 747-400s.

Cargo airlines will be the most impacted.
