Can the world’s aviation watchdog end the air space ban against Qatar? – Inside Story

June 15, 2017 6:13 pm

The air embargo by Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain and Egypt on Qatar, all part of the worst diplomatic crisis in the Gulf for years, is now into its second week. Qatar is calling the move by its Arab neighbours illegal.

Qatar Airways says 18 destinations in the 4 countries are now off-limits, about 50 flights a day. And many are being re-routed over Iran, Turkey and Oman. That means longer flight paths, using up more fuel.

All five countries are at talks in Montreal with the International Civil Aviation Organization which will try to find a solution.
