Riyadh: A Qatari plane landed late last night at the King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah, in a first since the crisis between the Arab Quartet (Saudi, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt) and Doha regime started in June 2017.
Official sources have confirmed the landing of the A319 plane which belongs to the Qatari Amiri Court, according to Almarsad.
The Amiri aircraft was reportedly carrying a Qatari diplomat, who arrived in Saudi, ahead of the emergency GCC summit, which will be held in Mecca, on the sidelines of the Arab and Islamic summits.
Independent Arabia Editor-in-Chief Adwan Al Ahmari posted a tweet which said that the Qatari plane had landed in Saudi, 48 hours before the summits, which will convene following a call made by King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.
The A319 plane later took off from Jeddah and returned to Qatar, with no passengers on board.
