Palestinian Airlines Back in Business After 10 Years

Palestinian Airlines has resumed flights after 10 years of being grounded.  The airline’s inactivity can be attributed to the Israeli-Palestine conflict.  The airline, once grand, is now a small operation that has two planes, each turboprop with 48 seats, and they have borrowed a hub in Egypt.  The airline’s two flights per week are all it has for now.  However, according to the Palestines, just the fact that they have a carrier is enough for now.  They are back on the map.

 

Zuhair Mohammed, a 38-year-old teacher from Gaza, was one recent passenger of Palestinian Airlines and he said his hands were shaking when he bought his ticket and it said the airline’s name.  The airline is actually 15 years old, despite its 10-year hiatus, and the future of the airline is closely tied with the future of the Palestinian state.  Through war, the destruction of the Gaza airport, and the eventual complete lack of passengers, the airline that once flew thousands was grounded indefinitely.  Regional director Azmi Samaan says that at least now they are in the market.
