Qatar Airways to resume flights to Saudi Arabia
Qatar Airways said it will resume flights to Saudi Arabia on Monday, following an agreement to end more than three years of dispute between the two countries.

The flag carrier tweeted that its flights will return to Saudi Arabia starting with services to Riyadh on Monday, Jan. 11, 2021, followed by Jeddah on Thursday, Jan. 14, and Dammam on Saturday, Jan. 16.

On Sunday, Saudi airline SAUDIA said it will resume its flights to Qatar as of Monday, for the first time since 2017.

The moves came after Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Egypt signed a reconciliation agreement with Qatar during the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) summit in the Saudi city of al-Ula.

On Monday, Saudi Arabia said that it agreed to reopen airspace and land and sea border to Qatar, as part of the agreement to lift a Saudi-led blockade imposed on Qatar since 2017.
