The development will drastically reduce flight times between Israel and Asian countries.

Last week, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain agreed to allow flights between Israel and the United Arab Emirates to use their airspace.

Following the US-brokered agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, a joint US-Israeli delegation flew from Israel to the UAE on Aug. 31 and used Saudi airspace to do so.
