TEL AVIV (JTA)—A huge fire, I
said to have been caused by a short
circuit, destroyed the main pas-
senger terminal at Lydda Airport
Oct. 24 but disrupted flights
only briefly. No injuries were re-
ported but damage was estimated
at millions of dollars. Deputy
Prime Minister Yigal Allon, who
visited the airport in his capacity
as acting minister of transport,
said the damage could be repaired.
Other reports said however that
the building, which is fully insured,
may not be usable.
Airport authorities stressed that
there was no evidence of sabotage
and said the fire was started when
a short circuit caused electric
cables to overheat. The cables ig-
nited ornamental plywood decora-
tions in the terminal which in turn
set fire to barrels of asphalt used
for repairs to the building. Flames
spread swiftly, and the terminal
was engulfed by black smoke. Pas-
sengers and employes in the
building were escorted to safety.
and no one was hurt.
An El Al plane about to take off
was delayed for an hour but all
flights continued. A British Euro-
pean Airways flight to Lydda with
Israel's Foreign Minister Abba
Eban aboard turned back to Lon-
don Airport when the fire was re-
ported. The plane resumed its
flight two hours later. El Al offi-
cials in London said none of their
flights were affected.
The blaze was confined to the
terminal building. An emergency
communications center was quick-
ly put into operations to receive
incoming traffic and contact was
maintained with all aircraft arriv-
ing or departing Lydda. Customs
and other administrative proce-
dures were transferred to another
building. Passengers were received
but non-passengers accompanying
them were told to stay away from
the airport.
The Lydda terminal building was
built in the 1930s and enlarged
many times to keep pace with in-
creasing air traffic. It was recently
renovated to handle large crowds
of travelers and visitors. Plans to
construct a new terminal were held
in abeyance for lack- of funds but
may have to proceed now as a
result of the fire.
