In his speech post signing agreement with Sudan, Bibi pointed that "the skies of Sudan are now open, which will decrease flight times to Latin America".

He's got a point, for when flights to latam restart.

I believe the below is roughly accurate (in a very amateurish way needless to say) except for the western part of Africa / Cameroon
.
First commercial flight to go through Sudan airspace.
One off LY flight from Uganda.

Maybe by then..  :)
Since you're already on the website, how much do the flights cost?
Checked with them today, no KSML yet, but let's check in a few weeks

Interesting that on the DXB flight board (not sure if it was arrivals or departures) it said Tel Aviv in Arabic but Lod in English.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

דובר רש"ת נמל תעופה בן גוריון :
לטסים בטיסות הבינלאומיות
החל מיום ראשון, ה 15/11,  כל תהליך הרישום לטיסה (צ'ק אין) והבידוק הביטחוני בטיסות הבינלאומית עובר לטרמינל 1. (למעט טיסות אל על.)

בזמן העתקת הפעילות יבוצעו עבודות שדרוג במערכות המיון אשר בטרמינל 3 עבודת אחזקה  שתכוננה מראש . העבודות החלו ב 1/11  והן תמשכנה כחודשיים.

הנוסעים  בטיסות הבינלאומיות  יבצעו את תהליך הצ'ק אין והבידוק הביטחוני מטרמינל 1 . לאחר תהליך הבידוק  יועברו הנוסעים לדיוטי פריי שבטרמינל 3 להמתנה לטיסתם.


החניון הצמוד לטרמינל 1 פתוח לציבור הטסים

תהליך הרישום לטיסה והבידוק הביטחוני לטיסות אל על יימשך מטרמינל 3 (לעת עתה)

I just noticed Arkia is selling flights to Seychelles. Up to 4x weekly in December. Starting at 450 euros for return flights.
Seychelles is one of the few green countries left which are letting Israelis. No quarantine required, just negative PCR tests

FLYDUBAI to start twice daily DXB TLV flights from Nov. 26

https://www.devdiscourse.com/article/business/1296158-uaes-flydubai-to-start-direct-israel-flights-this-month
They are selling flights for about USD90 more than Arkia and Israir but it includes a "entry-visa" to the UAE. "Entry permit to Dubai Please complete your passport details to obtain flydubai-sponsored entry permit to Dubai."
There are reports of a money back guarantee if the visa isn't approved or requirement waived by the time the flights commence.
