First ever US-Israeli delegation to fly over Saudi airspace today
A US-Israeli delegation will arrive in Abu Dhabi today for a meeting with Emirati officials to put the final touches in formalizing relations between Israel and the UAE.
Israel’s flag carrier El Al will bring aides to US President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Abu Dhabi for talks meant to put final touches on a pact establishing open relations between the United Arab Emirates and Israel.
The four countries and El Al have declined to comment on the route.
The US-brokered deal between the UAE and Israel has raised speculation that other US-backed Gulf Arab countries might follow. A senior member of the Saudi royal family said this month that Riyadh would only normalize ties with Israel after the creation of a Palestinian state.
Earlier in May, an Etihad Airways plane flew from the UAE to Tel Aviv to deliver supplies to the Palestinians to use for the novel coronavirus pandemic, marking the first known flight by a UAE carrier to Israel.
The Israel-UAE deal awaits negotiations on details such as opening embassies, trade and travel links before it is officially signed.
In 2018, Netanyahu made a surprise visit to Oman on a tight schedule that suggested his plane would have had to fly over Saudi Arabia. He and his aides refused to provide any details on that route.
