The legacy of Trump’s Middle East peace efforts linger despite the illegitimate Biden administration’s attempts to destroy any gains made, especially between Arab nations and The Jewish State.
Trump’s belief was that economics would bring the two sides together and evidence of the genius of this insight was seen today as Israeli El Al airlines and Etihad from the United Arab Emirates formed an unlikely codeshare partnership.
Despite tensions in the Middle East, Israeli flag carrier El Al has found an unlikely partner to help expand their growth. The airline announced a partnership with UAE-based Emirates, which will include codesharing and reciprocal frequent flyer benefits for passengers flying aboard both carriers, wrote Flyertalk.
It’s a partnership very few could have imagined but will change travel throughout the Middle East once implemented. In a press release, Etihad Airways announced a “strategic cooperation” with El Al Israel Airlines, which will include both frequent flyer programs and codesharing.
The partnership comes days after Israeli foreign minister Yair Lapid visited the United Arab Emirates capital to celebrate his nation’s first embassy in the Persian Gulf. The two countries normalized their diplomatic relationships back in September 2020.
