Region: Middle East


Yemen’s air transport sector is relatively small compared to that of other countries of similar size, population and GDP, however despite its limited size the sector has some significant strengths. Yemenia, the flag carrier of Yemen has operated all domestic and international routes since 1962. A second carrier, Felix was established by private investors in 2008 with the objective of operating domestically. There are eighteen internationally registered airports, airfields and airstrips in Yemen, however only six airports have regular scheduled air services, and accommodate international traffic. These airports include Sana'a International Airport (SAH), Aden International Airport (ADE) as well as Riyan Mukalla Airport (RIY) and Ta'izz International Airport (TAI). The Civil Aviation and Meteorological Authority of Yemen (CAMA) is the body responsible for regulating the air transport industry in the country.
