Aviation Israel

The aviation industry faces a number of challenges in 2020 – from sustainability and digitisation to the potential fallout from the COVID-19 outbreak.

In this series, ILO caught up with some of our leading specialists around the world to discuss the three main aviation issues affecting their jurisdiction in 2020. 

The economic fallout from the COVID-19 crisis is the main issue facing the Israeli aviation industry in 2020. Temporary amendments to the Aviation Service Law were recently presented to Parliament to help airlines deal with customer compensation claims during the pandemic, while industry players are also in discussions with the Ministry of Finance about possible government assistance.

In the below video, Keren Marco discusses these issues as well as the ever-increasing number of class actions filed against airlines in Israel over the past decade.
