The diplomatic row between Qatar on one hand and four other Gulf Arab nations – Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain and Egypt keeps getting deeper as the day goes on.
Qatar Airways just announced that it has suspended all flights to Saudi Arabia with immediate affect.
Etihad Airways had earlier suspended flights to Qatar after the four nations announced decision to cut diplomatic ties with Qatar over alleged support for terrorism.
“Qatar Airways has suspended all flights to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia” until 1159 GMT the same day, a statement from the Doha-based carrier said.
A spokeswoman added that it was unclear if the suspension would be extended.
