Russia resumes flights with Qatar after months of suspension


All flights between Moscow and Doha were halted due to restrictions imposed by the coronavirus pandemic last year.

Flights between Qatar and Russia resume on Wednesday after a suspension that was imposed at the height of the pandemic. 

The return of the flights came after Doha met its coronavirus criteria, with fewer than 40 new cases per 100,000 people, reports stated.
