UAE launches direct flights to Israel

An Emirates flight from Dubai landed on Thursday at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv. This is stated in the press service of the national air carrier of the United Arab Emirates.

This is the first regular flight from the UAE to Israel after the normalization of relations between the two countries.

The Boeing 777 aircraft with 355 passengers on board was welcomed in the air harbor of the Israeli capital with a solemn ceremony.

Mohamed Al-Haja, the UAE Ambassador to Israel, was also reportedly among the passengers.

The diplomat commented on the significant event on his Twitter. “I want this air route to open up new opportunities for strengthening ties between our peoples and countries,” he wrote.

Israel and the UAE signed an agreement on the normalization of relations on September 15, 2020. The ceremony was held at the White House in the presence of US President Donald Trump.

The UAE is the leader among Arab countries in terms of cooperation with Israel.
