Qatar Airways suspended flights to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. This is the official website of the carrier.
The official reason for the suspension of flights is not called. The company noted that all bought tickets on the cancelled flights will be able to return the full amount for them, or choose a different arrival point.
5 June Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain and the UAE announced the rupture of diplomatic relations with Qatar, accusing Doha of supporting terrorist organisations, including the banned in Russia “Islamic state” (IG) and “al-Qaeda”, as well as committing acts to destabilize the political situation in these Arab States. Their decision was later joined by Yemen, Libya, the Maldives and Mauritius.
Later, the media found out that the government of Qatar paid the terrorists of the banned terrorist organization “Dzhabhat EN-Nusra” hundreds of millions of dollars for the release from captivity of 26 members of the Royal family, captured in southern Iraq.
