Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Avigdor Liberman and Greek Foreign Minister Dimitris Droutsas will sign an aviation treaty on Monday, 18 October. The treaty will replace the aviation agreement between Israel and Greece that was signed in 1952.

The new agreement covers a variety of subjects concerning aviation relations between the two countries, such as the appointment of additional air carriers, enabling up to two carriers to service each side for each destination (instead of the present one). Other subjects include establishing rules for setting rates; establishing procedures for settling disputes through negotiations; arbitration; establishing a schedule of routes;  setting up guidelines for mutual criticism of the agreement and the appointed air carriers regarding compliance with safety regulations that relate to aviation facilities, flight teams, aircraft or their operation, and other subjects.
