Flights To And From The UAE Are Allowed To Use Saudi Airspace
Saudi Arabia has allowed all flights to and from the United Arab Emirates to pass through its airspace.
Following Saudi Arabia’s decision, Israeli flights will be able to fly directly to the United Arab Emirates using Saudi airspace.
According to the Saudi Aviation Authority, the planes were allowed to use the airspace at the request of the United Arab Emirates.
Shortly after the Saudi announcement, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, without mentioning Saudi Arabia, that Israeli flights would go directly to the United Arab Emirates.
Earlier, in 2018, Saudi Arabia allowed Indian Airlines to use its airspace to fly to Israel.
