Emirates Airline has confirmed that it will be commencing daily services to Tel Aviv from June 23.

The flight schedules have been timed to provide convenient access to Dubai and optimum connection opportunities to popular holiday destinations like Thailand, India, Philippines, the Maldives, Sri Lanka and South Africa.

The new service will also provide 20 tonnes of cargo capacity on each flight, strengthening channels for Israeli businesses and start-ups to export products.

"We look forward to finally welcoming customers onboard our flights to and from Tel Aviv this summer, and offer them substantial connectivity to and through our Dubai hub as COVID-19 travel restrictions continue to ease around the world and more borders open up," said Adnan Kazim, Chief Commercial Officer, Emirates Airline.

The first flight taking off on June 23 will operate as EK931, leaving at 15:50, and arriving at Ben Gurion Airport at 18:00 (local time).

The return service EK 932 will depart Tel Aviv at 19:55, arriving in Dubai at 23:59 (local time).
