The official Saudi Press Agency said the statement was in response to a “request by the UAE” for flights to and from the country.

Saudi Arabia announced Wednesday that flights to and from the United Arab Emirates “from all countries” will now be able to use its airspace. The statement means flyovers to and from Israel to the UAE will be allowed.

While the statement avoided naming Israel directly, it is clearly directed toward the recent agreement reached between the UAE and Israel.

On Monday, the first-ever commercial El Al flight to the UAE was given permission by Saudi Arabia to use its airspace, cutting the flight time by half to 3 1/2 hours. It wasn’t known until the day of the flight whether permission would be given. Without the Saudis’ OK, the flight would have been forced to take the long way around the Arabian peninsula with a flight time of over seven hours.

The news signals that Saudi Arabia tacitly supports the agreement between the UAE and Israel. Indeed, it has been reported that the UAE would never have made the deal if the Saudis hadn’t given their approval.

Officially, Saudi Arabia says it will not sign a similar deal with the Israelis until the Palestinian issue is resolved.

The opening of Saudi skies is good new for tourists, as well as for Israel’s national carrier El Al and the two UAE airlines, as it will be easier to travel between the two countries. Israelis are already eager to hop on a plane to visit the Arab country. Israelis are known for their love of travel and their free-spending ways as tourists.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the announcement in a video post, indicating its direct effect on Israel.

“For years, I have been working to open the skies between Israel and the East,” he said, hailing the “tremendous breakthrough” that Israeli planes can now fly cheaply and quickly from Israel to the Emirati capital of Abu Dhabi and skyscraper-studded city of Dubai.

The official Saudi Press Agency said the statement was in response to a “request by the UAE” for flights to and from the country.

On board the Monday flight was a U.S.-Israeli delegation led by Senior Trump Advisor Jared Kushner.
“For me to fly over here today was a tremendous honor,” said Kushner, who played a key role in brokering the peace arrangement. “I believe that this agreement has the ability to change the whole course of the Middle East.”

Progress was made during the talks with Israel and the UAE as they signed their first bi-national agreement Tuesday for cooperation in banking and financial services, including the war on terror.

“Today we signed the first agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates on cooperation in the field of banking and finance. The agreement will help us promote huge investments in Israel that will bring more money to citizens and more jobs,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted.

It has been reported that a formal signing ceremony at the White House may take place this month.

沙特官方新闻社说,该声明是对“阿联酋要求往返该国的航班”的回应。

沙特阿拉伯星期三宣布,“来自所有国家”的往返阿联酋的航班现在将能够使用其领空。该声明意味着将允许以色列往返阿联酋的天桥。

该声明避免直接命名以色列,但显然是针对阿联酋与以色列之间最近达成的协议。

周一,沙特阿拉伯批准了有史以来第一次商业性的Al Al商业航班飞往阿拉伯联合酋长国,使用其领空,将飞行时间缩短了一半,至3 1/2小时。直到航班起飞当天,才知道是否会给予许可。没有沙特阿拉伯的同意,该航班将被迫绕阿拉伯半岛走很长一段路,飞行时间超过七个小时。

该消息表明,沙特阿拉伯默认支持阿联酋与以色列之间的协议。实际上,据报道,如果沙特阿拉伯不批准,阿联酋将永远不会达成交易。

沙特阿拉伯正式表示,在解决巴勒斯坦问题之前,不会与以色列签署类似协议。

沙特开放的天空对游客以及以色列的国家航空母舰Al Al和阿联酋的两家航空公司来说都是新的好消息,因为这将使两国之间的旅行更加容易。以色列人已经渴望搭乘飞机访问阿拉伯国家。以色列人以热爱旅行和自由消费的方式而闻名。

以色列总理本杰明·内塔尼亚胡在录像带中称赞了这一宣布,表明其对以色列的直接影响。

他说:“多年来,我一直在努力打开以色列和东方之间的天空,”他称赞以色列飞机现在可以廉价廉价地从以色列迅速飞往阿联酋首都阿布扎比和摩天大楼茂密的“巨大突破”迪拜市。

沙特官方新闻社说,该声明是对“阿联酋要求往返该国的航班”的回应。

周一的航班是由高级特朗普顾问贾里德·库什纳(Jared Kushner)率领的美国-以色列代表团。

库什纳说:“今天让我飞到这里是一个巨大的荣誉。”库什纳在促成和平安排方面发挥了关键作用。 “我相信这项协议能够改变整个中东局势。”

在与以色列和阿联酋的会谈中,双方在周二签署了两国在银行和金融服务合作(包括反恐战争)方面的第一份双边协议时取得了进展。

“今天,我们在以色列和阿拉伯联合酋长国之间签署了关于银行和金融领域合作的第一份协议。该协议将帮助我们促进在以色列的大量投资,这将为以色列带来更多的钱和更多的就业机会。

据报道,本月可能在白宫举行正式的签字仪式。
