Problems for Qatar airlines

  • Four United Arab Emirates (UAE)-based carriers – Emirates, Etihad, Air Arabia, and Fly Dubai – along with Saudia, the national flag carrier of Saudi Arabia, and Gulf Air, the flag carrier of Bahrain have suspended flights to Qatar following diplomatic issues. Meanwhile the aviation authority of Saudi Arabia has also formally annulled Qatar Airways’ licence to operate flights in and out of the country. All this is expected to pose significant problems for people in Qatar and ones hoping to visit the country.
