(Washington, DC) -- Three major U.S.-based air carriers are resuming flights to and from Israel's main international airport following a two-day ban imposed by the FAA. Delta, United and US Airways all confirm they'll be flying into and out of Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv. The ban was put in place after a rocket fired from Gaza landed about a mile away from the normally-busy airport earlier this week. The European Aviation Safety Agency is also withdrawing its ban on travel to Tel Aviv and Air Canada says it'll be flying there again starting later tonight.
