In the course of the blasphemous normalization with the ‘Israeli’ occupation entity, the UAE announced a codeshare cooperation deal with the Zionist flag-carrier on Thursday.

The measure is so far the latest sign of deepening ties between the two sides following September's unashamed normalization of diplomatic relations.

The move follows Zionist Foreign Minister Yair Lapid's visit to the UAE this week to inaugurate the entity’s first Gulf embassy in the Emirati capital Abu Dhabi.

The airlines said in a statement they had "launched their joint codeshare network and reciprocal loyalty agreement for frequent flyers."

"This builds on the Memorandum of Understanding [MOU] the airlines signed in 2020 following the ‘Abraham Accords’ signed by the UAE and ‘Israel’," it added.

Under the agreement, El Al will sell tickets and offer frequent flier points to its members for the twice-weekly Etihad service between Abu Dhabi and Tel Aviv from July 18.

Pending regulatory approval, Etihad will then begin to sell tickets for 14 routes operated by El Al as well as offering benefits to its frequent fliers.
