Moroccan Minister of Tourism, Handicrafts, and Air Transport Nadia Fettah Alaoui said that direct flight routes between Morocco and Israel will be launched in two to three months, official news agency MAP reported on Thursday.

An Israeli delegation landed in Moroccan capital Rabat on Tuesday on the first commercial flight between Israel and Morocco, which agreed recently to normalize ties.

The two countries signed the same day an agreement on ensuring direct flights, and pledged to engage in talks for the conclusion of an agreement on air services, according to the report.
