Turkey and Israel have signed an agreement that enables more than one airline companies to operate flights between the two countries, the semi-official Anatolia news agency reported Wednesday.

The deal also includes new flight destinations and removes frequency restrictions, the agency said, citing a statement from Turkish Transportation Ministry Civil Aviation Directorate General.

Turkish and Israeli civil aviation executives held negotiations in Ankara on Monday over the new agreement as a previous civil aviation deal signed in 1951 could not meet demands of current conditions, the report said.

The two countries' air carriers would be able to fly between the Turkish cities of Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Antalya and Dalamanand the Israeli destinations of Tel Aviv, Haifa and Ovda/Eilat, according to the report.
