First direct Israel-UAE flight

An Israeli plane made history, flying through Saudi Arabian airspace and landing in the United Arab Emirates. The significance of this flight originates 4,000 years ago with a man named Abraham. Jared Kushner’s historic plane ride to the UAE, was very prophetic. The Times of Israel reported:

In a historic milestone, an Israeli passenger plane flew through Saudi Arabian airspace Monday on the first direct non-cargo flight between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

El Al Flight 971, carrying high-level Israeli and US delegations, flew southeast down almost the entire length of Saudi Arabia to reach its destination in Abu Dhabi. It was the first time an Israeli plane was given permission by the kingdom to use its airspace.
