Lufthansa response to article alleging it cancelled certain flights and prevented pro-Palestinian activists from boarding Israel-bound plains

Several airlines received information by Israeli authorities on specific passengers who were barred from entry into the country and therefore could not board a flight to Israel. Airlines must comply with the immigration laws and administrative decrees of the states they are operating into. Lufthansa is therefore obliged not to transport passengers, whose entry into the respective state has been denied by local authorities beforehand.
