Starting December 6th, Emirates Airlines has announced plans for daily flights between Dubai and Tel Aviv.
In a statement after the intended plans, Emirates Airline chief commercial officer Adnan Kazim said, “Emirates is excited to announce Tel Aviv, one of the region’s key gateways, as its newest destination. With the start of services in just a few weeks, Emirates will provide more options for travelers to fly better to and from Tel Aviv via Dubai. “We also look forward to welcoming more business and leisure travelers from Israel to Dubai, and onwards to other destinations on Emirates’ network.”
Apart from Emirates, Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, started operating daily flights earlier this year.
As of now, Emirates has already been operating in Israel through its low-cost flyDubai budget airline, which currently operates four weekly flights between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. This will soon change with the arrival of these new daily flights, which are the result of Israel opening its doors to foreign tourists.
