Israel’s national carrier, El Al, and the smaller Israeli Arkia Airlines both announced Tuesday night that they will allow passengers to reschedule their flights without a penalty charge.

The change must be made to the same destination, but with a future date. The tickets need to be redeemed until the end of May.

The accommodation is being made in deference to the current security situation in Israel.
