The disagreement concerns with the airport arrangements raised by Shin Bet, noting that Dubai security authorities have failed to provide adequate necessary security to the Israeli airlines. 

Shin Bet asserted, “Over the past few months, security arguments have been revealed between the competent bodies in Dubai and the Israeli aviation security system in a way that does not permit for the responsible enactment of security for Israeli aviation.” 

Meanwhile, speaking on the condition of anonymity, one of the Israeli high-rank officials cited, “If El Al can’t fly to the Emirates, then Emirati companies can’t land here. The crisis could be regional, not just bilateral“.  

Though, no official statement has yet been issued by Dubai security authorities on the matter. 

Shin Bet further cites, “At the same time, if the flights of Israeli companies are stopped on this route, the possibility of transferring Israeli flights to Abu Dhabi is being examined. It should be emphasized that the disputes are [regarding] a security basis that is contrary to the standards used at the airport in Dubai, and do not come from a political or regional basis at all”.
