An Ithihad Airways plane from Abu Dhabi landed for the first time in Israel, with the colors of the famous Arab company.
The plane brought equipment with it to the Palestinian Authority, which is intended to fight the Corona virus. The flight was coordinated in advance with the Israeli authorities, and was a direct flight from Abu Dhabi to Tel Aviv. The plane is expected to take off back to Abu Dhabi by tonight.

As you can hear in the video, an exciting conversation took place between the Israeli flight inspector and the Arab airline pilot. The pilot from the Abu Dhabi company congratulated the inspector on "Peace" in Hebrew, among others. The supervisor, for her part, wished him a pleasant stay in Israel.
About a month ago, a plane from the same company landed in Israel. Last time the excitement was smaller, as the aircraft was without the official colors of Arab society, but only a clean white aircraft. This time, as mentioned, the aircraft came with the official colors of the Etihad Airways company, which made the entire event historic and exciting.
