Ryanair plane disabled – Austrians cannot leave Israel


A Ryanair passenger plane coming from Vienna, which was already over Israel, had to divert on Monday morning, shortly before landing at Tel Aviv airport, and was diverted to Paphos in Cyprus. Many Austrians are stuck in Israel due to canceled flights.

The flight was diverted to the Mediterranean island of Cyprus due to a dangerous situation involving a missile attack, according to real-time data from flight monitoring service Flightradar24. “The plane that was supposed to take me home just turned around,” the deputy head of the Vienna Labor Chamber’s social policy department, Phillip Brokes, wrote on X (formerly Twitter).

According to information on Ryanair’s website, the plane’s flight, which was supposed to fly from Tel Aviv to Vienna, was canceled due to the lack of clearance for takeoff. This means that many Austrians who want to leave the country due to the escalation of violence cannot leave Israel so quickly.

Numerous airlines have canceled flights
Due to the Hamas terror over the weekend, airlines around the world – including the AUA – canceled dozens of flights to Israel this weekend. As could be read on the arrival boards at Ben-Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv on Saturday, AUA parent company Lufthansa, Air France, Ryanair, Emirates, Aegan Airlines and American Airlines, among others, have canceled their connections to the Israeli metropolis.

While Hungary and Poland, for example, are flying out citizens separately from Israel, which has become a war zone, Austria points to regular exit options that still exist. “There are still scheduled flights and the border crossings with Jordan are still open,” Foreign Minister Alexander Schallenberg (ÖVP) said on Monday in the Ö1 “Morgenjournal”.
