Saudi-led forces have prevented a plane belonging to Yemenia Airways from parking at Al-Rayyan International Airport in Mukalla, after the airport was opened on Thursday.
The coalition forced the Yemenia plane to leave and stay at foreign airports. As a result, the company has had to pay a large fee for the airports in which the planes are staying at.
In a speech marking the resumption of flights at Al-Rayyan International Airport, Hadi’s Deputy Prime Minister Salem al-Khanbashi called on the coalition to allow Yemenia Airways planes to stay at Yemeni airports.
He also called for domestic and foreign flights to help alleviate the suffering of citizens, but apparently he was not heeded by the Saudi invaders.
Al-Rayyan International Airport resumed its civil flights after being shut down by the invaders for over four years.
Al-Rayyan International Airport is Yemen’s third largest airport, after Sana’a and Aden airports. Sana’a Airport remains blocked by a Saudi aerial blockade allowing only some UN flights to land, while Aden is still being occupied by Saudi-backed militants and terrorists.
