(Reuters) – El Al Israel Airlines (ELAL.TA) said on Thursday it will operate the first cargo flight to Dubai by an Israeli carrier on Sept. 16.

The first flight, using a Boeing 747 jet, will fly to Belgium and from there to Dubai, carrying agricultural and high tech products. It will later become a weekly flight, leaving Israel every Wednesday and returning to Israel on Fridays.

El Al said the new line will be an “import and export” link to Dubai and further east.
