Saudi Arab officially allows Israeli Airlines International News

Saudi Arabia announced on Monday evening that it has officially given approval for Israeli airlines to fly over the country’s airspace, dramatically shortening flying times to the east and finally allowing Israeli airlines to offer direct flights to Dubai,-Israeli Media claims.

Until now, Israeli airliners did not have permanent approval for direct flights to traverse Saudi airspace. Reportedly, the change was made following a visit to Saudi Arabia by White House senior officials Jared Kushner and Avi Berkowitz.

Israel Airlines is scheduled to conduct the first such flight to Dubai on Tuesday.
