Tus Airways has received permission to operate flights between Israel and Qatar in advance of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the Cypriot airline announced on Sunday.

The festival of soccer will be held in the Gulf nation from November 20 to December 18.

Since Israel and Qatar do not have diplomatic relations, it is impossible to fly there directly. According to the airline, the flight from Tel Aviv will include a “diplomatic layover” in Larnaca.

The return legs will be on the same plane with the same crew and operate in the same manner. Depending on the dates, prices will start at $555.

On Friday, the airline received all necessary permissions from Qatari authorities to operate these one-of-a-kind flights. The maiden journey is scheduled to depart on November 20 and the final flight on December 15. Flights will leave Ben-Gurion Airport between 8 and 9 a.m. and arrive in Doha between 3 and 4 p.m.

Who will tell the truth about Israel in 2023?

Few things are certainties in a fast-changing world.

But there’s little doubt that the rising tide of antisemitism and demonization of Israel will continue to worsen in the upcoming year.

A publication that you can trust to supply you with accurate information as well as the sort of analysis and opinion that puts it all in perspective is absolutely vital.

JNS is an oasis of truth.
