The Israeli budget carrier Arkia has confirmed it will operate a service between Tel Aviv and Dubai for a limited period early next year.

The carrier says that it would deploy an Embraer E195 on the route between early January and the end of March next year, following the recent diplomatic agreement to allow air connections between the two nations. 

The carrier is currently undergoing a massive restructuring programme as it seeks to regain some financial security following the turmoil caused by the global downturn in business as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. It is estimated that up to 400 people would lose their jobs at the airline during the restructuring.
