Flydubai has announced the start of flights between Dubai and Tel Aviv from November 26.
The carrier will operate 14 flights a week offering a double daily service between Dubai International (DXB) and Tel Aviv Ben Gurion (TLV).
This announcement follows the air transport agreement that was recently signed by the UAE and Israel as well as the start of passenger and cargo operations by other national carriers.
In addition, there have been a number of bilateral visits as travel and tourism opportunities open-up.
"Following the recent bilateral agreement, the start of scheduled flights will contribute to economic development and create further opportunities for investment in pursuit of our shared interests and values," said Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer at flydubai.
"With the start of services there will be the option for increased accessibility to the UAE as well as onwards to the Indian Ocean, Far East and Africa, reducing total journey times by several hours," he added.
