Saudi Airlines: Unable to transport Qatar pilgrims due to lack of permission
Saudi Airlines has said it has so far been unable to schedule its flights to transport Qatari pilgrims from Hamad International Airport in Doha due to lack of permission from the latter’s side.
The airlines’ general director, Eng. Saleh Al-Jasser, said that Qatari authorities have not allowed their Saudi Airlines’ planes to land despite days having passed since the request began.
Saudi Airlines had asked Qatari authorities for permission for their trips to transport Qatari pilgrims, which were scheduled after the directives of Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz. The directives where taken after the mediation Qatar’s Sheikh Abdullah bin Ali Al Thani.
