Proactive Investors - EasyJet PLC (LON:EZJ) has extended its flight suspension from the UK to Israel until October 27 due to escalating tensions in the Middle East.

Initially paused until April 21, the suspension now covers the entire summer season, reflecting the ongoing volatile situation in the region. Customers with existing bookings have been offered refunds.

This move is part of a broader trend as airlines globally adjust operations in response to recent geopolitical events, including Iran's attack on Israel, which has significantly disrupted international air travel.

Other carriers, including Lufthansa and Air India, have also modified their flight routes or suspended operations to avoid the affected airspace.

In late morning trading, EasyJet stock was down 1% at 516p in line with the wider market.
