After Saudi Arabia, Oman Opens Airspace for Isra*li Airlines

Israeli carriers will be able to use the Saudi-Oman corridor, shortening the flight route to various Asian destinations, after Oman’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) on Thursday opened its airspace to all commercial airlines.

Saudi Arabia said last year that its airspace will be available to all civilian planes, but Israeli airlines were unable to use the route because of restrictions from Oman, which does not recognise Israel because of the Palestine conflict.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Oman confirmed that the sultanate’s airspace is open to all carriers that meet the requirements for overflying in a statement on Twitter. “Enforcing international and local requirements against discrimination in dealing with civilian aircraft,” the CAA’s statement read.
