Tamir Halts Air Service to Rosh Pina and Kiryat Shmona

Tamir Aviation stopped regular service to Rosh Pina and Kiryat Shmona last Friday.

Tamir, the sole operator of the internal aviation franchise to the North of the country, took the step in response to what it calls "the Transportation Ministry's criminal negligence," and the ministry's non-fulfillment of its responsibilities for the tender for the routes.

The main problem is the monetary demands of the airport operator in Kiryat Shmona, Victor Hajaj. The matter will be heard by the High Court of Justice this month.

The ministry places the blame for the cancelation of the flights on Tamir and claims that all the ministry's attempts to mediate have failed.
