Civil and military aircraft use airspace according to need, Mr Swift says. "Both sides are able to carry out their business and national defence operations without problem.
"Aviation officials from the Middle East who visit NATS in the UK are often surprised to see civil and military controllers sitting side by side," he says. "But it is an approach that the region could certainly benefit from."
Mr Swift, who advised UAE authorities on airspace issues for the construction of Dubai's new airport, says technology is not an issue. Many Gulf countries have state-of-the-art air traffic management systems.
The UAE's Sheikh Zayed Air Navigation Centre was opened in 2009, and is one of the most sophisticated in the world.

"If people start losing faith in the business model, that will be a serious problem," Mr Swift says. "Eventually, people will have to start thinking about about protecting their investment. An aircraft on the ground does not make money."
'Difficult choices'
Mr Swift describes airspace as an "invisible infrastructure" that should be treated and managed like an economic asset.
