The first commercial passenger flight to ‘Israel’ by a carrier from the United Arab Emirates landed near Tel Aviv on Monday, further cementing a normalization deal between the two sides in August.
Etihad Airways Flight No. 9607 landed at Israeli Ben-Gurion international airport just after 7 a.m. The Boeing 787 Dreamliner departed for Abu Dhabi later Monday with an Israeli travel and tourism delegation on board, according to an Etihad statement.
Etihad said it plans regular passenger flights between the ‘countries’ in the future and was launching a dedicated Hebrew website.
