Istanbul: Turkey lifted a ban on flights to Tel Aviv`s Ben Gurion airport after a ceasefire was agreed between Israelis and Palestinians, the state`s SHGM aviation authority said on Saturday.

"Taking into account the current ceasefire situation, the flight ban on Israel`s Ben Gurion airport has been lifted, pending a subsequent announcement," it said via its Twitter account. 
SHGM introduced the ban late on Tuesday and had repeatedly extended it due to security concerns.
