Bahrain confirms Qatar will have access to its airspace

Bahrain’s civil aviation affairs authority confirmed on Sunday that as of January 11, its airspace will be open to Qatar.

The news follows on from a U.S.-backed deal by Arab states to end a dispute with Doha last week. This announcement also occurred after Riyadh announced a breakthrough at a summit on Tuesday to end the bitter political row in which Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt imposed a diplomatic, trade and travel boycott on Qatar in mid-2017.

The UAE and Saudi Arabia have already announced they are re-opening their airspace, land and sea-entry points to Qatar.
