Yemen – Sana’a International Airport reopens for commercial flights after six years
Location: Sana’a -Yemen
Restrictions: A24 Client
Earlier in the day, a plane of Yemen’s flag carrier Yemenia Airlines took off from Sanaa International Airport to Queen Alia Airport, Amman, Jordan, in the first commercial flight after six years.
The plane carried 127 passengers, most of whom are patients needing treatment abroad, and it will return with 61 passengers.
The Arab coalition countries exert efforts to preserve the truce that was reached in Riyadh, to put an end to the conflict that has been escalating for years, which would alleviate the suffering of the Yemenis after years of war.
Soundbite (Khaled Al-Shayef – Director of Sana’a Airport):
“The plane is carrying 127 passengers on board, the majority of whom are patients needing treatment abroad. The flight will arrive in Jordan, and will return with 61 passengers.”
