Emirates will launch a daily non-stop flight between Dubai and Tel Aviv, Israel on December 6.
The move comes as the UAE and Israel continue to develop greater economic cooperation to drive growth across a range of sectors, in addition to boosting trade flows between both nations.
With the new daily flights, Israeli travellers will be able to connect safely, seamlessly and efficiently to Dubai, and through Dubai to Emirates’ global route network of more than 120 destinations.
Emirates’ new flights will also boost connections for business communities in both countries, creating new channels to network and forge investment opportunities across industries.
With the opening of visa-free travel between both countries and the easing of restrictions across the Emirates network, the new services will meet future travel demand in and out of Tel Aviv.
The airline will deploy its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration on the route.
Daily flights are scheduled to depart Dubai as EK931 at 14:50hrs, arriving at Ben Gurion Airport at 16:25hrs local time. The return flight EK 932 will depart Tel Aviv at 18:25hrs, arriving in Dubai at 23:25hrs local time.
Emirates’ customers will also benefit from the airline’s codeshare partnership with flydubai.
