Qatar Airways Starts Refunding Unused Tickets

Following the announcement of Emirates, Etihad, and other airlines that suspended flights to and from Doha, Qatar Airways has started refunding unused tickets. Crowds of passengers who have booked flights with the airline have been flocking to its office in Deira.

Since the UAE government issued a statement supporting Saudi Arabia and Bahrain on cutting ties with Qatar – airspace and seaports have been closed off to country. UAE nationals are barred from staying or traveling to Qatar, while Qatari nationals are given 14 days to leave the UAE.
