The Israeli airline Arkia announced on Tuesday it would begin offering daily direct flights between Tel Aviv and Dubai in early January.

Arkia — Israel’s second-largest airline after El Al — will use its Embraer 195 jets, which seat 122 passengers, on the route.

Flight time between Israel and the United Arab Emirates is between 3-4 hours.

One-way prices will start at $149, Arkia said.
