The director of Sana’a Airport said in a tweet, "If we compare the number of passengers through Beirut Airport and the number of passengers through Sana’a International Airport, then the number of passengers through Beirut Airport for the year 2022 is six million and 349 thousand and 967 passengers, while the number of passengers through Sana’a Airport does not exceed 50 thousand traveler from 2017 until today."
The statements of the director of Sana’a Airport come after the office of the UN envoy to Yemen announced, Wednesday, on “Twitter” that over 50,000 passengers benefited from the flights that took place through Sana’a International Airport, which reached 100 flights since the beginning of the armistice on April 2, 2022.
Recently, “Commercial flights to and from Sana'a Airport over the past eight years did not exceed 1,276 flights, compared to 20,000 flights during 2014 only,” Al-Shayef said in a statement to Al-Masirah Network.
He indicated that the number of travelers during the eight years of aggression did not exceed 162 thousand passengers, compared to one million 900 thousand passengers during 2014 only. He added that the amount of air freight during the years of aggression did not reach 721 tons, compared to 16,177 tons during 2014 only.
Al-Shayef pointed out that Sana'a International Airport was receiving daily, during 2014, about 50 flights for 14 carrier companies, and five thousand passengers arrived and departed from it daily.
The US-Saudi aggression imposes a suffocating blockade on Yemen and closes ports and airports to increase the suffering of the Yemeni People and create deteriorating living and economic conditions. It is trying to barter the humanitarian aspect to obtain political and military gains at the expense of the Yemeni People.
With the beginning of the truce in last April, the aggression tried to evade its commitment to open Sana'a airport and make flights only to one destination, Jordan, and for a very limited number.
Sana'a confirmed more than once that the continued closure of Sana'a airport proves the lack of seriousness of theUS-Saudi aggression to bring peace to Yemen.#Yemen #Aggression #Sanaa_Int_Airport 23-01-27
