Bahrain will open its airspace to Qatar as of January 11, the civil aviation affairs authority said on Sunday, following a deal by Arab states last week to end a dispute with Doha.
The move comes after Riyadh announced a breakthrough at a summit on Tuesday to end the political row in which Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt imposed a diplomatic, trade and travel boycott on Qatar in mid-2017.
Saudi Arabia and the UAE have already announced reopening air, land and sea entry points to Qatar.
The reopening of the borders came on the eve of the 41st GCC Summit which was held in Saudi Arabia's AlUla city.
