EghtesadOnline: Qatar Airways is set to become the biggest loser in the Persian Gulf’s diplomatic crisis, with many of its routes to Africa, South America and southern Europe disrupted after neighboring countries closed their airspace to overflights by Qatari planes.

A journey from Qatar’s capital Doha to Sudan’s main city of Khartoum is now almost twice as long at about six hours, as pilots circumvent Saudi Arabian skies to fly over Oman instead. These costly detours are likely to hurt ambitions at state-owned Qatar Air -- the region’s second-biggest carrier --- of turning Doha into a global super-hub rivaling Dubai, Bloomberg reported.
