Bahrain and Qatar to resume flights

Bahrain’s Civil Aviation Affairs announced on Monday the resumption of flights with Qatar as of May 25.

This comes “in accordance with what was agreed upon between the concerned authorities in the two brotherly countries,” Bahrain News Agency reported.

The statement added that the resumption of flights “achieves the common aspirations of the leaderships and citizens of both countries.”

The move comes over two years after an Arab boycott of Qatar was lifted. Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt in January 2021 ended a three-and-a-half year embargo of Qatar. But Bahrain restored travel and trade links in 2021.
