Saudi Arabia allows all flights to and from UAE to use its airspace

Saudi Arabia announced that it will now allow flights to cross its skies to reach UAE, a historic first that comes just days after the kingdom let the first direct Israeli commercial passenger flight use its airspace to reach the UAE.

Any direct flight between the two nations would need to use Saudi airspace to be commercially viable.

The Saudi Press Agency said the move comes in response to a request by the UAE for flights to and from the country.

Saudi Minister of Foreign Affairs Faisal bin Farhan said the agreement would not change the Kingdom’s stance towards the Palestinian cause.
