Aden (IINA) – The Yemen Airways resumed flights to Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, after a hiatus of one and half years, with a flight from Yemen’s Aden International Airport to the Saudi city of Jeddah.
"A Yemeni Airlines airbus took 128 passengers to Jeddah on Wednesday afternoon for the first time since February of last year," a Yemeni Airlines source told Anadolu Agency (AA). Last week, Yemen’s national carrier announced plans to resume weekly flights to Saudi Arabia every Wednesday.
In November 2015, President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi issued instructions limiting civilian air traffic from Yemen to Cairo and Jordanian capital Amman.
Yemen has been dogged by chaos since late 2014, when the Houthi militia overran the capital Sana’a and other parts of the country, forcing Hadi and his Saudi-backed government to temporarily flee to Riyadh. In March last year, the Saudi-led Arab coalition launched a massive military campaign in Yemen aimed at reversing Houthi military gains and restoring the Yemeni legitimate government, under the leadership of President Hadi.
