Doha flights as per schedule: Jet Airways, IndiGo

Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen made no demands of Qatar, but their decision plunged the nation’s worldwide travel hub into chaos, igniting the biggest diplomatic crisis in the Gulf since the 1991 war against Iraq.

Several airlines from those countries earlier announced they would no longer fly to Qatar. All but Egypt, which has many thousands of people working there, ordered their citizens to leave the country.

Egypt and the UAE accused Qatar of supporting and funding Islamic State, al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.
