If it was historic enough that Air India was allowed Saudi airspace for flight into Israel, the country’s Prime Minister is now hoping for more connectivity with India.
This became cleared when the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday he hopes to slash flight times between Tel Aviv and India’s financial capital Mumbai next.
The flight from New Delhi landed at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion airport on Thursday in a sign of a discreet warming of ties between the Arab kingdom and the Jewish state.
Netanyahu revealed about Mumbai plans in his weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Israeli national carrier El Al’s current Mumbai service may suffer all the more because it has not yet been allowed overflight permissions to fly to India.>
