Ties Cut With Qatar

Gulf states, Egypt cut ties with Qatar | Daily Mail Online

Have they all closed their airspace to them as well or just airports?

Qatar seems to be in big trouble for supporting terrorism.

Saudi Arabia-led Bloc Cuts Ties With Qatar Over 'Support to ISIS, Al-Qaeda' - News18 Although it has been known for some time that Qatar covertly supported terrorist/extremist groups it was hoped by the US and partners that the "close links" would allow diplomatic pressure to be placed and moderate the problems in this way. Unfortunately, recent barbaric events means that the administrations in the West have had little choice but to strengthen their alliances with other Arab nations leaving Qatar out in the cold. It is inevitable that aviation will be effected.. life jacket on..jumping ship PDQ! There's little point in living in Bahrain if you can't get to work..be interesting to see how Qatar reacts, maybe they will realise they have more to loose than gain by funding ISIS/Muslim Brotherhood, Although Qatar is a member of the US coalition against ISIS.. didn't we call these "double agents in WW2!" As Qatar uses Bahrain airspace lets see how this plays out..or not!

Out of curiousity, if Qatar Airways was prevented from transiting the Bahrain FIR, would they be able to make Tehran FIR just across the Gulf? I don't know if Doha Approach reaches all the way to Tehrans airspace.
By the way, the Maldives just broke diplomatic relations with Qatar.

That was my question. If Bahrain closes their FIR to Qatar Airways can they make it over to Tehran FIR by staying lower and in the Doha Approach airspace? If not they are boxed in.
