Historic! Israel's first commercial flight lands in Abu Dhabi

Aug 31, 2020 18:34 IST

The first commercial flight took off from Israel and landed in UAE's Abu Dhabi on Monday to seal the peace deal between the two nations and normalise relations.
High level delegation including, Jared Kushner, US president's son-in-law, and Israel's National security advisor, Meir Ben Shabbat flew to UAE in an Israeli El Al airliner, Flight LY971. 
It became the first flight to cross the Saudi Arabian airspace, normally blocked for Israeli flights.
Earlier, UAE opened its direct telephone service for Israel and also revoked the 1972 law boycotting the country. 
UAE is now the 3rd Arab country after Egypt and Jordan to recognise Israel since its founding in 1948.
