Dubai - Tel Aviv service coming on 26th November for Flydubai

The United Arab Emirates budget airline Flydubai will start direct flights between its home base of Dubai and Tel Aviv on Israel on 26th November, the airline confirmed on Wednesday.

This new service is only possible to a thaw in the frosty relations between the two nations achieved in recent weeks. "The start of scheduled flights will contribute to economic development and create further opportunities for investment," flydubai CEO Ghaith al-Ghaith said, confirming  "The carrier will operate 14 flights a week, offering a double daily service between Dubai International Airport and Tel Aviv Ben Gurion Airport,".

Rather surprisingly, the normalization of relations between UAE and Israel has already seen the governments agree on treaties on direct scheduled and charter flights, visa-free travel, investment protection, science and technology.
