JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israel and the United Arab Emirates have reached a security agreement that will allow Israeli airlines to resume a full flight schedule to Dubai, security agency Shin Bet said on Friday.

A dispute over Dubai airport security had forced them to cut back their services and without a solution all flights would have been grounded by March 8.

Shin Bet said an agreement had been reached with their Emirati counterparts.

“Common working principles and safety precautions have been agreed that will allow Israeli airlines to resume regular flights to Dubai,” it said.

Non-stop flights from Tel Aviv to Dubai were among the fruits of a landmark 2020 deal that forged ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. Hundreds of thousands of Israelis have since visited the commercial hub of the United Arab Emirates and the Gulf.

Israeli airline El Al welcomed the resolution and said it would immediately resume operating up to three or four flights a day to Dubai.

The Israeli security service Shin Bet had previously raised concerns – which it did not publicly detail – about the arrangements at Dubai International Airport.

El Al and two smaller competitors that fly to Dubai had said a problem was securing enough security tags for staff to handle a busy flight schedule.
