Gulf car­ri­ers sus­pend flights to and from Doha

Business Traveller (Asia-Pacific) - - UP FRONT -

AIR­LINES in­clud­ing Eti­had Air­ways, Emi­rates and Gulf Air have sus­pended all flights to and from Doha, fol­low­ing the de­ci­sion by Saudi Ara­bia, Egypt, Bahrain, the UAE, the Mal­dives and Ye­men to cut diplo­matic ties with Qatar.

In re­sponse, Qatar Air­ways sus­pended all flights to Saudi Ara­bia, the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain (un­til fur­ther no­tice at time of writ­ing).

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, the four Arab coun­tries have accused Qatar of “desta­bil­is­ing the re­gion” through its sup­port for ter­ror­ist groups in­clud­ing IS and al-Qaeda, a claim strongly de­nied by Doha. eti­had.com, emi­rates.com, gul­fair.com, qatarair­ways.com
