Dear Colleagues and Friends
 
The diplomatic Situation in the Middle East is tensing slightly,
since all Qatari diplomats were given 48 h to leave Saudi and the UAE,
all Qatari nationals have to follow suit within 14 days,
and meanwhile vice versa.

Qatar is only a Gas producer and has no Oil reserves
 -  hence pushing the Gas to Oil conversion -
One has to see how fast things develop now
 
 
For the Transport Sectors it means adjusting transport routes until further notice!
 
ETIHAD and EMIRATES already announced ceasing service as of Tuesday 6th early morning

QATAR AIRWAYS may temporarily be avoided,
to avoid pending heavy congestion or even grounding.

While the countries are free to refuse landing rights, it is unclear if Bahrain and the UAE can legally ban Qatar Airways from its airspace. As signatories to the International Air Services Transit Agreement, Bahrain the UAE can't legally shut off its airspace to fellow signatory Qatar.
Saudi Arabia, however, is not an IASTA member country and can legally shut Qatar Airways out of its airspace.
