From the 6th of December, Emirates will operate daily flights to Tel Aviv. The airline Emirates has announced that it would begin operating a daily non-stop route between Dubai and Tel Aviv (Israel) on December 6. In addition to increasing trade flows between the two countries, the UAE and Israel are working to strengthen their economic ties in order to spur development across a variety of industries and support overall growth in the region.
Israel’s citizens and visitors will now be able to connect securely, swiftly, and effectively to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and from there to Emirates’ global route network of more than 120 destinations worldwide. With the new daily schedules to and from Tel Aviv, travelers will have easier access to popular leisure locations outside of Dubai, such as Thailand, the Indian Ocean Islands, and South Africa, among other places.
The new flights also provide convenient inbound connections to Tel Aviv from nearly 30 Emirates gateways in Australia, the United States, Brazil, Mexico, India and South Africa – all of which are home to some of the world’s largest Jewish communities – as well as from other destinations in Europe and the Middle East.
Travelers from the United States who want to make a pit stop in Dubai before continuing on to Tel Aviv may take advantage of the Dubai Stop Over package, which includes accommodations at world-class hotels, sightseeing, and a variety of additional activities.
Apart from business travelers, Dubai continues to attract leisure travelers from Israel with its ever-expanding variety of activities, which includes hosting Expo 2020 Dubai, which has already attracted more than 2 million visitors in its first month.
In accordance with the theme “connecting minds – shaping the future,” Israel will have its own national pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai.
Furthermore, Emirates’ additional flights will strengthen relationships between the corporate communities in both nations, opening up new avenues for networking and generating investment possibilities across a range of sectors.
With the introduction of visa-free travel between the two countries, as well as the relaxation of limitations throughout the Emirates network, the airline expects the additional services to match future demand in and out of Tel Aviv, according to the airline.
Customers on the route between Dubai and Tel Aviv will be served by the airline’s modern Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, which will be configured in a three-class configuration, with private suites in First Class, lie-flat seats in Business Class, and spacious seats in Economy Class.
On a daily basis, flight EK931 is scheduled to depart Dubai at 14:50 hours and arrive at Ben Gurion International Airport at 16:25 hours local time. The return flight, EK 932, will depart Tel Aviv at 18:25 hours local time and arrive in Dubai at 23:25 hours local time.
Customers of Emirates will also reap the benefits of the airline’s codeshare agreement with flydubai. Travelers will benefit from the codeshare since it will give them with quick and smooth connections from Dubai to locations throughout the combined networks of both airlines, which now includes 210 destinations in 100 countries.
