The Saudi Civil Aviation Authority has also ordered the closure of all offices of Qatar Airlines in the kingdom within 48 hours, the news agency reported.

Passengers who had earlier bought tickets for flights to and from Qatar have been asked to contact their travel agent for a refund.

On Monday, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Yemen announced they were cutting diplomatic ties and closing borders with Qatar, accusing the energy-rich country of supporting terrorism in Syria and Yemen.
