US officers introduced on Tuesday that the primary industrial flight between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is scheduled for subsequent week, carrying American and Israeli delegations to Abu Dhabi after the 2 international locations agreed to normalise relations.
The flight, doubtless on an Israeli El-Al airliner, would carry a US delegation headed by President Donald Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner and Nationwide Safety Adviser Robert O’Brien, the officers mentioned.
They mentioned the Israeli delegation could be made up of consultants within the fields of aviation, house, well being and banking. The officers weren’t authorised to debate the matter publicly and spoke on situation of anonymity.
It is going to be the first-known direct flight by Israel’s state airline to a Gulf Arab nation.
