Israel's Israir and El Al airlines said Thursday that they were «ready» to operate direct flights between Morocco and Israel, the wake of a normalization agreement between Rabat and Tel Aviv.

According to Jerusalem Post, the Israeli airline Israir quickly announced that «within a few months, they would begin 20 flights a week between the two countries», Israir CEO Uri Sirkis said.

For its part, the airline El Al Israel Airlines Ltd. said it is examining the possibility of establishing direct flights between Israel and Morocco after the United States announced Thursday that the two countries will normalize relations. «Such flights would be very popular among Israeli clientele», the carrier said in a statement.

El Al said that the company «will begin operational preparations for operating direct flights to Casablanca, subject to obtaining all the necessary approvals from the various authorities».

Morocco became, yesterday, the fourth Arab country to normalize ties with Israel in just four months, after the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Sudan did the same.
