On Monday, the first direct flight between Qatar and Egypt and the UAE took to the skies following the end of a three-and-a-half year regional crisis earlier this month.
Egypt was part of an Arab quartet that had severed diplomatic and economic ties with Qatar in June 2017. The four countries – including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain – accused Qatar of supporting terrorism and being too close to Iran, and imposed a land, air and naval blockade.
Qatar has denied the accusations throughout.
All four countries have now announced the reopening of their airspace to Qatar.
