Egypt opens airspace to Qatar following the lifting of the blockade. Previously, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain had opened their airspaces to Qatar.

According to Egyptian daily Al Ahram Gate, Engineer Ashraf Noyer, head of the Civil Aviation Authority, said that Egypt officially lifted the ban today, on Tuesday.

Aviation analyst Alex Macheras tweeted on Monday saying: "Egypt officially updates its NOTAMs (notice to airmen) to remove its airspace ban on Qatar, which lasted 3.5 years — following Saudi Arabia, UAE & Bahrain, and marking the end of the entire air blockade."
