ISRAELI flag-carrier El Al has revealed plans to offer Boeing 747 freighter service from Tel Aviv to Dubai, although the flight will operate via Liege, reports London's FlightGlobal.

Israeli media outlets reported statements from El Al that a weekly link to Dubai will be added to the route network from September 16.



El Al's operations remain grounded with the exception of its 747-400 freighter, which is not Israeli-registered, but wet-leased from US carrier Atlas Air and carries the US registration N487MC.



Regular non-stop services between Israel and the UAE will be a subject of negotiations following the disclosure in mid-August that the two sides will normalise diplomatic relations, said the report.



El Al has already marked the agreement with a special one-off flight from Tel Aviv to Abu Dhabi on August 31.



UAE operator Etihad Airways, based in Abu Dhabi, has started offering a sales channel to customers within Israel, through tourism firm TAL Aviation. TAL says it is not yet offering a similar service for Dubai-based Emirates.
