The Civil Aviation and Meteorology Authority (CAMA) of Yemen announced that the first commercial flight from Sanaa International Airport will take off next Sunday after seven years of closure. The United Nations informed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that it was approved to operate the first commercial flight from Sanaa International Airport to Jordan’s Queen Alia Airport on Sunday, April 24 at 8 am CAMA official spokesman Mazen Ghanem said.
Yemenia Airways will start making reservations for that flight, (April 20), and patients will be given priority. The history of Yemen Airways goes back to the 40s. From 1949 until 1977, Yemen Airways had experienced moderate developments and structural reforms. Yemen Airways took a big step forward and formed Yemenia (Yemen Airways) with 51% government ownership and 49% Saudi ownership in July 1978.
