Egyptian airlines omits Israel from maps

Tel Aviv, Israel: Egyptair, Egyptian airlines, reportedly has erased Israel from the map on its Web site, showing instead Jordan stretching to the Mediterranean Sea. However, there was no official comment of the omission either from Israeli or Egyptian officials. Egyptair flies to Israel four times a week and subsidiary Air Sinai flies to Israel more often.

Other airlines based in Muslim countries that fly to Israel such as Royal Jordanian and Turkish Airlines stipulate Israel and the city of Tel Aviv on their maps and sites, Ynetnews.com report said.
