EgyptAir targets Doha as North African nation opens airspace to Qatar

Egypt’s airspace and flights were the last pieces in the jigsaw with the three Gulf nations already moving to open up aviation routes to Qatar since the signing of the AlUla peace accord.

EgyptAir is set to fly to Doha after the AlUla Accord.

EgyptAir will resume flights to Qatar after the three-year rift between Doha and Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain ended last week.
