Saudi Arabia has agreed to let Israeli airliners cross its airspace en route to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

According to Reuters and Israeli media outlets, the decision was taken after talks between Saudi officials and the White House senior adviser, Jared Kushner.

Kushner and American Middle East envoys Avi Berkowitz and Brian Hook raised the issue shortly after they arrived in Saudi Arabia for talks.

“We were able to reconcile the issue,” an official from the administration of United States President Donald Trump told Reuters on Monday.

Riyadh allows UAE-Israel flights to use its airspace

The agreement was hammered out just a few hours before Israel’s first commercial flight to the UAE was scheduled on Tuesday morning.

The Israeli flight was at the possibility of being called off with no overflight agreement.

The direct flights are an offshoot of ‘peace’ deals Israel reached this year with the UAE, Bahrain, and Sudan.

The UAE has already derived benefits from normalization, including the White House pushing forward with arms sales, including an advanced fighter jet, to the Gulf country.

“This should resolve any problems that should occur with Israeli carriers taking people from Israel to the UAE and back and to Bahrain,” the White House official told Reuters.
