But recent crisis in Gulf region seem to be threaten the continuing success of the Qatar’s national flag carrier.
Since some countries in Gulf decided to cut off the diplomatic relationship with Qatar and cancelling air traffic permission to all Qatar Airways flights in their space abruptly, many problems have been emerged in Qatar. Because of the trouble and worsening relationship with those countries in Gulf including Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain and Egypt, Qatar Airways has to cancel many flights to dozens of destinations. If the problems continue for long term Qatar’s economy could be damage significantly, experts warn.
