"Yemenia " cancels a trip and postpones another because it did not get a license from the Coalition

Yemenia Airways announced late Tuesday that it had postponed one of its flights and cancelled another because it had not obtained a license from the coalition.

Yemeni, the main national carrier in Yemen, said it cancelled flight number IY506 from Aden to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Thursday, and said it was forced to take the measure because of the "inability to obtain the permit for the trip, we regret to inform you that the flight date for Friday has been postponed till June 14, 2019  ". According to a statement on the Yemenia Airways Facebook page.

In the same announcement, Yemenia informed its customers that it cancelled the flight of Cairo Aden No. IY601 for Thursday also without specifying the date of the alternative flight and said that "the passengers will be connected via automatic booking to rearrange their travel bookings."

Recently, steps have been taken to cancel airlines flights to and from Aden airport for not obtaining licenses from the Saudi Arabian-led coalition, and those involved in airlines say they receive a notice that they do not receive a permit each time without giving reasons.

The coalition has been in control of Yemen since it announced a military intervention in Yemen in March 2015, with the exception of Aden and Seiyun airports, which operate partially, the rest of Yemen's airports are completely closed, including al-Rayyan airport in the city of Mukalla Hadramawt (eastern Yemen), which has been transformed into a military base of UAE troops.

Millions of Yemenis are struggling to move to and from Yemen due to the closure of airports and the closure of Yemeni airspace to commercial airlines whose participation in transportation to and from Yemen can reduce the cost of air tickets and decrease the number of waiting days spent by a Yemeni passenger for a seat.
