DUBAI: Bahrain has approved a request to allow the passage of flights from all countries headed to the UAE through the Kingdom’s airspace.
The Civil Aviation Affairs department at the Ministry of Transportation and Communications said the request came from the UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority.
The request stated the UAE’s desire to allow flights to pass through the Kingdom's airspace while traveling between “all countries” and the UAE.
The announcement came after Saudi Arabia released a similar statement on Wednesday.
It comes after the UAE and Israel normalized ties last month.
A joint Israeli-US delegation traveled from Tel Aviv to Abu Dhabi on Monday and returned on Tuesday.
