Morocco and the Zionist entity signed an aviation agreement that will see direct flights launch between the two sides.
The development on Thursday comes after ‘Israel’ and Gulf states, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates, signed similar cooperation agreements late last year.
The first direct commercial flight headed from Tel Aviv to Rabat took place in December, marking the normalization agreement between the two sides under which Washington also recognized Moroccan sovereignty over disputed Western Sahara.
Tickets for regular commercial flights, however, have yet to go on sale, Israeli broadcaster i24 News reported.
Bureaucratic delays have been compounded by the pandemic, which forced Morocco to mostly close its borders since March and impose a nationwide curfew in December, the Israeli media outlet added.
Israel had established liaison offices in Morocco in the 1990s during a short-lived diplomatic opening.
