JERUSALEM, May 27 (JTA) — Israel’s Transport Ministry has decided to ban smoking on Israeli airline flights of less than five hours. The ban will affect most flights from Israel to Europe. Similar sanctions are already in effect on flights of less than two hours. The three Israeli airlines — El Al, Arkia and Sun D’Or — have 90 days to respond to the proposal, before it goes into effect for a year-long trial period.
