    HISTORIC El Al 971 to Abu Dhabi: First Israel-UAE 'commercial flight'

    An Israeli-American delegation was set to take off Monday on the first commercial flight from Tel Aviv to Abu Dhabi as the US-brokered normalisation agreement between the Jewish state and the UAE takes hold. The El Al flight, scheduled to leave at 0730 GMT from Ben Gurion Airport near Tel Aviv, will carry a delegation led on the American side by President Donald Trump's son-in-law and White House advisor Jared Kushner.

    The word "peace" was painted on the plane's cockpit in Arabic, English and Hebrew, images issued by El Al showed.

    "You will see how the sparks fly on this. It's already happening," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, speaking alongside Kushner in Jerusalem on Sunday, said, predicting that "today's breakthroughs will become tomorrow's norms. It will pave the way for other countries to normalise their ties with Israel."
