El Al, the national carrier of Israel, is to launch direct flights to Ireland next year.
Flights to the capital are set to begin on May 26th 2020, with tickets going on sale from next month.
There will be three scheduled weekly flights between Dublin and Tel Aviv.
El Al will operate the new routes on Boeing 737 aircraft, featuring both economy and business class.
The Ireland Israel Business group - a consultancy firm dedicated to boosting Irish-Israeli trade - said direct flights to Dublin are likely to "significantly strengthen the economic and trading relationship between Ireland and Israel".
The new flights could also have an impact on how travelers from Israel reach North America.
Dublin Airport has US Preclearance, meaning US-bound passengers can clear US immigration and customs inspections at the airport.
Mattan Lass is managing director of Ireland Israel Business.
He said: "The announcement of a direct flight between Dublin and Tel Aviv is a game changer for Israeli companies looking to access European markets following Brexit".
"It is also a huge help for Irish companies that want to benefit from Israel's unique expertise in tech innovation."
