The meeting stressed the necessity of scheduling the additional flights agreed upon to  Jordan on a regular and permanent basis, so that travelers can book easily, whether inside or outside the country.

The Minister of Transport indicated the importance of opening the destinations of Cairo and India after completing the return trips of pilgrims, because of its importance in alleviating the suffering people of Yemen, especially the sick.

He also stressed the interest in Sana'a International Airport and the endeavor to open it completely without restriction or condition, as it is a right people of Yemen and is linked to the humanitarian aspect.

For his part, the Director of Sana'a International Airport, Khaled Al-Shayef, confirmed that the non-operation of flights from Sana'a International Airport to the destinations agreed upon under the truce is due to political obstruction by the US-Saudi aggression.

"Only 84,000 passengers were transported during a year of the armistice, compared to 2 million passengers annually before the US-Saudi aggression," he said.

He pointed out that 50 flights per day were going to Sana'a airport, in exchange for one destination to Jordan and 184 flights during a year of truce.

The  Undersecretary of Civil Aviation and Meteorology, Raed Jabal, confirmed that the US-Saudi aggression rejected the requests of Djibouti, Jordanian, Al-Saeeda airlines and other companies to operate flights to and from Sana'a International Airport.

He pointed out that there is approval by Cairo and New Delhi to operate flights to it, and the obstruction comes from the US-Saudi aggression by not allowing Yemenia or other carrier companies to operate these flights.

Recently, the Undersecretary of the Civil Aviation and Meteorology, Raed Jabal, affirmed that the aggression coalition has abandoned its humanitarian obligations in opening Sana'a International Airport to provide its services to the people of Yemen.

He pointed out that the aggression coalition continues to impose a siege on Sana'a airport, and refuses to allow it to operate in a manner that meets the actual need.

He also considered that the coalition of aggression, USA, Britain and France, renewed the closure of Yemeni airspace, indicates its intention to continue imposing the siege on the people of Yemen.

Jabal pointed out that the aggression coalition deliberately closes Sana'a International Airport to deprive the people of Yemen of their legitimate right to travel, which was guaranteed by international laws and agreements in light of the silence of the United Nations.

He called on international organizations and relevant authorities in the field of air transport to take a serious and effective stance to compel the aggression coalition to open the airports of the Republic of Yemen.
