    Israeli airlines Israir and Arkia have advertised packages to Dubai for flights starting on Dec. 9, but say they are yet to receive final approval for the flights.
    El Al Israel Airlines, the country's biggest airline, and Dubai's Emirates have not advertised flights. The aviation industry is enduring its worst crisis after the coronavirus pandemic this year crippled most flights.
    El AL and Abu Dhabi's Etihad Airways have recently operated flights being the two countries carrying official delegations.
