Qatar Airways restarts flights through Saudi Arabia’s airspace

Qatar Airways announced on Thursday that it has begun to reroute some flights through Saudi airspace, days after Qatar and Saudi Arabia ended a years-long dispute, dpa reported.

Gulf leaders on Tuesday signed an agreement aimed at ending a years-long rift between a Saudi-led bloc and Qatar at their annual summit in Saudi Arabia.

In 2017, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, along with non-Gulf country Egypt severed diplomatic, trade and travel ties with Qatar, accusing it of supporting Islamist militant groups, an accusation that Doha denies.
