Some 28,000 passengers on 180 flights face having to make alternative travel arrangements following an announcement Tuesday by workers that they will shut down Ben Gurion International Airport from Friday evening to Saturday evening, to protest moves by the Interior Ministry to charge the Israel Airports Authority municipal taxes. If the strike goes ahead, only a skeleton staff will remain at the airport to deal with emergencies.
