Israeli airlines are requesting to use Saudi Arabia’s skies for their flights as soon as this week, after Riyadh said it would allow them to fly over its territory, according to Channel 13 news.

The network says El Al and Arkia are both asking to reroute flights scheduled this week to destinations in the East, which would shorten flight times by up to three hours.
