Netanyahu Says Bahrain Deal Will Result in Direct Flights

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that a deal establishing relations between Israel and Bahrain will result in direct flights between the countries

“There will be brisk and direct air traffic between the countries,” he said in remarks to the Israeli cabinet, a transcript of which was issued by his office.

The Bahrain deal, announced on Friday, followed a similar accommodation between another Gulf power, United Arab Emirates, and the Zionist entity and resulting pledges of direct air connections.

Saudi Arabia has said it would allow Israeli airliners to overfly its territory en route to the Gulf.
