In a statement, the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) clarified that it only allowed Qatar flights to use the airspace above worldwide waters and managed by the UAE and not the UAE airspace.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Wednesday denied opening its sovereign airspace to transit registered aircraft in Qatar, the Emirati official WAM news agency reported.

Qatar rejected the demands, in a response that the four countries considered very negative, and made a decision to continue the boycott of the former, and to consider new sanctions against it.

On Tuesday, Qatar's Civil Aviation Authority said that Qatar's national airline carrier, Qatar Airways, would use new air routes for its global flights due to a traffic blockade imposed on Doha by a number of neighboring states amid the ongoing diplomatic row.

Al-Baker also said Qatar Airways was evaluating whether to use air routes which media reports said were opened this week by countries embroiled in a political dispute with Qatar.

Al Baker said the airline was studying "the flexibility and benefit" of one "very short route" while another route off the Egyptian coast was "useless" to the airline, Mr Al Baker said at a Doha press conference, giving no further details.

Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic and transport ties with Qatar in June, accusing it of fomenting regional unrest, supporting terrorism and getting too close to Iran, all of which Doha denies.

Al Subaie noted that the approval of the new routes was a great success for Qatar, given its ability to convince the International Civil Aviation Organization of the importance of compliance by the siege countries to the Chicago Convention.
