Not gonna happen before a comprehensive peace agreement in the region, including an establishment of a viable Palestinian state. Improved relations with some Persian gulf countries will not lead to open and diplomatic relations. Public opinion in the Middle East even in the gulf will not accept before the Palestinian issue is resolved, and that can take decades.

Why not?. Israel has flights with Turkey, Egypt and Jordan.

Of course I don't see Israel having flights with more extremist countries like Lebanon, Qatar or Iran any time soon (unless things change a lot), but progressive countries in the Arabian Gulf like the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, UAE or Oman seem feasible in the near future.

Israel has diplomatic relations with Turkey, Egypt, and Jordan. So not surprising that there are flights between those countries (although there isn't very much between CAI and TLV, actually). The Palestinian issue isn't really a factor, except for the other Arab/Islamic countries.

LY served CAI-TLV already, if not in place anymore, then most likely on the grounds of demand.
