Emirates Airlines to launch daily Israel-Dubai route from December 6

Emirates Airlines said on Thursday it will launch daily nonstop flights between Dubai and Tel Aviv starting December 6.

Flights will depart Tel Aviv every day at 6:25 pm and arrive in Dubai at 11:25 pm In Dubai, flights will depart at 2:50 pm and arrive at Ben Gurion Airport at 4:25 pm

The state airline will deploy its modern Boeing 777-300ER aircraft and offer private suites in First Class and reclining seats in Business Class.

The new route will join other routes between Tel Aviv and Dubai operated by El Al, Israir, Arkia, Etihad and flyDubai.
“With the start of services in just a few weeks, Emirates will offer more options for travelers to better fly to and from Tel Aviv via Dubai,” said Adnan Kazim, Commercial Director of Emirates Airlines. “We also look forward to welcoming more business and leisure travelers from Israel to Dubai, and onward to other destinations in the Emirates network.”

The move comes as the United Arab Emirates and Israel continue to develop greater economic cooperation following the signing of the Abraham Accords last year. With the new daily flights, Israeli travelers will be able to connect via Dubai to Emirates’ global route network of more than 120 destinations. The new flights also introduce inbound connections to Tel Aviv from about 30 Emirates gateways in Australia, the United States, Brazil, Mexico, India and South Africa.

Dubai currently hosts the World’s Fair, which has already attracted more than 2 million visits in its first month.

Israel is participating with its own national flag for the first time in an Arab country, and some 15 million visits are expected.

Since it safely resumed tourism activity in July 2020, Dubai remains one of the world’s most popular vacation destinations, especially during the winter season, the airline noted.

In addition to passenger operations, Emirates SkyCargo will offer 20 tonnes of cargo capacity each way between Dubai and Tel Aviv on the Boeing 777-300ER to support exports of pharmaceuticals, high-tech products, vegetables and other perishable goods from Tel Aviv.
