HistoryEdit

As of early 2016, all of Yemenia's flights operated via Bisha Domestic Airport.[2] However, Yemenia does not have the traffic rights to transport passengers solely to/from Bisha. As of March 2018, there are only two flights operated by Yemenia: Amman and Cairo. Until November 2017, it was the sole operating airport in Yemen, due to the air blockade on Sana'a International Airport and political turmoil in Aden International Airport.[3][4]
