Government announces soon opening of Al-Rayyan airport and promises to create new port in Mukalla


The Yemeni government on Thursday announced the resumption of air traffic at Al-Rayyan airport in Al-Mukalla, the eastern province of Hadramawt, days after the residents of Hadramawt asked the coast authorities to reopen the airport for flights.

Minister of Transport Saleh Algbwani said that the ministry is moving to make al-Rayyan International Airport a central airport, due to its distinctive location and proximity to international air traffic lines, and pledged to provide all the necessary equipment to restart it.

This came during his inspection visit to the airport, along with the governor of Hadramawt, commander of the second military region, Maj. Gen. Faraj al-Bahsasni today to see the current equipment to restart the airport.

The airport will soon be ready for air traffic, said Airport general engineer Anis Basweteen.

In the context, Algbwani inspected the port city, and said in a meeting with its staff that the current port would be developed to accommodate the largest number of especially large ships, creating a new port in Broome or al-Dhabbah.

The Minister valued Saudi support for Al-Mukalla port, which is to support the port with a 60-ton crane provided by the Saudi reconstruction program in Yemen, which will help improve shipping and unloading services at the port.
