Qatar Airways and Saudi Airlines will resume flights between Doha and Riyadh from Monday in a reopening of airspace as part of a political rapprochement in a a few-yr-aged dispute.
Qatar Airways mentioned through Twitter on Saturday it will resume flights to Riyadh on Monday, Jeddah from Jan. 14, and Dammam from Jan. 16. It explained the flights would be with huge-overall body planes such as the Boeing 777-300, Boeing 787-8 and Airbus A350.
“We also look ahead to resuming a robust relationship with our trade and cargo partners in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, as very well as the main airports in the place,” the airline included on Twitter.
Saudi Airways (Saudia) also tweeted that it as well would resume flights from Riyadh and Jeddah to Doha from Monday.
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt imposed a diplomatic, trade and vacation embargo on Qatar in mid-2017 accusing it of supporting terrorism. Qatar denied that and said the embargo was meant to undermine its sovereignty.
Saudi Arabia and its 3 Arab allies agreed to restore full ties with Doha at a summit in the kingdom on Tuesday.
