Scandinavian Airline SAS announced Monday it would end its service to Tel Aviv, as well as Moscow and Ankara, due to “political instability.”

The carrier currently runs four weekly flights between Tel Aviv and Copenhagen, and has stated that it is refocusing services on new long- and short-range routes in Europe and America.

SAS has been operating direct, weekly flights between Tel Aviv and Copenhagen since June 2012 and it would resume flights to Israel March 2016.

The company said that the Tel Aviv route was expensive to operate in “stiff competition, ” and that the there had been reduced crew availability for the night flights, which leave Copenhagen at 10:45pm and arrive in TLV in the early morning hours, before returning to Copenhagen.

The company added that their office in Israel would continue to function as usual, including providing services and selling tickets.
