Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain have imposed an air embargo on airlines from Qatar or registered there, the three countries said Tuesday.
The air embargo came into effect when Riyadh, Abu Dhabi and Manama broke off relations with Qatar on June 5, accusing it of supporting "terrorism".
But the ban does not apply to aviation companies and aircraft not registered in Qatar and the three neighboring countries, and which wish to cross their airspace to and from Qatar, according to the statements published by the national agencies of the three countries.
The embargo only bans "all Qatari aviation companies and aircraft registered in the state of Qatar" from landing or transiting through the airspace of the Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.
The three Gulf states are among several countries which last week announced the suspension of all ties to Qatar over what they say is the state's support for extremist groups and its political proximity to Iran.
