Israeli and Russian aviation authorities will meet in Moscow next week to discuss proposals to increase air traffic between the two nations. The meeting, which is being organized on the Israeli side by officials of the Civil Aviation Authority and the Transportation Ministry, will focus on a request by Israeli company Cargo Air Lines, Ltd., which has asked to begin regular cargo transports between Ben-Gurion Airport and Moscow. The company is seeking to operate one flight weekly between the two countries, with an option to add additional flights according to demand. CAL, which transports more than 20 percent of the cargo flying out of Tel Aviv, said the proposed flights are a response to increased demand for Israeli products in Russia. In addition to increasing trade, company officials said adding regular cargo flights to Moscow will make the transfer of products cheaper for Israeli exporters.
