Bahrain will open its airspace to Qatar as of January 11, the civil aviation affairs authority said on Sunday, following a U.S.-backed deal by Arab states last week to end a dispute with Doha.

Bahrain, along with Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt, severed diplomatic, trade and travel ties with Qatar in mid-2017.
