DOHA: Qatar Airways and Etihad Airways said on Saturday (Jan 28) they would enforce the new rules governing entry to the United States following President Donald Trump’s temporary order restricting arrivals from seven Muslim countries.
A spokesperson for Qatar Airways said it would only carry passengers to the US who had the correct documentation.
“We are enforcing the new rules,” said the official. “If travellers to the US don’t have the proper documentation, we are not going to take them to the US.”
The news comes after Trump imposed tough new controls on travellers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
