Israeli media: A direct flight from Saudi Arabia lands in Israel this evening

And the Israeli broadcaster, Kan, reported that the plane left Ben Gurion International Airport on Monday evening, and arrived in Riyadh on Tuesday, after staying overnight in Amman.

According to global air traffic tracking websites, the plane, a Bombardier Challenger 604, took off last night at 23:21 from Israel to Jordan, and after it stayed at Queen Alia International Airport in the Jordanian capital Amman at night, the plane took off on Tuesday morning At 10:08, heading to King Khalid International Airport in Saudi Arabia.

This comes a day after the first flight from Saudi Arabia landed in Israel, as a Boeing 737 of the Emirates Royal Jet landed at Ben Gurion Airport on Monday evening, the Jerusalem Post reported.

The newspaper pointed out that despite the absence of commercial flights between Saudi Arabia and Israel, due to the absence of official relations between the two countries, the start of flights represents a major progress in Saudi-Israeli relations, after the two countries opened their airspace to each other last year.

Before the opening of the Saudi airspace, the planes of the Israeli company “El” had to take a long and winding road to India’s Mumbai to avoid Saudi airspace, which added about two hours to the flight from Tel Aviv and put the Israeli carrier at a very disadvantageous position in front of competitors, who are allowed to fly directly through the Saudi sky.
