Qatar Airways has started using Somali airspace since a number of Arab states severed diplomatic ties with it on Monday, reported All Africa.
A Somalia Civil Aviation official said 15 Qatari aircrafts have landed in Somalia since Monday; previously only two aircrafts would arrive in Somalia from Qatar each day.
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Bahrain and others have applied a land and air siege on Qatar over tensions on foreign policy.
In a Foreign Ministry statement, Saudi Arabia accused Doha of sheltering and backing terrorist groups, promoting terrorist groups in the media, and supporting Houthi militia in Yemen. Doha denies the accusations.
