Sana'a Airport can no longer receive UN humanitarian flights due to continued Saudi bombing

The Director of Sana’a International Airport, Khaled al-Shayef, on Tuesday announced that the airport is out of order, after its facilities were bombed by Saudi-led coalition warplanes last night.

This came during a press conference held on the ruins of the Civil Aviation and Meteorology Institute at the airport.

At the conference, Undersecretary of the General Authority for Civil Aviation and Meteorology, Raed Talib, said that the coalition’s airstrikes had hit the Civil Aviation Institute, the quarantine building, freight hangars and plane refueling equipment.

Talib announced the suspension of flights by the United Nations until further notice, to ensure the safety of the flight staff.

For his part, the Director General of the Yemeni Petroleum Company, Ammar al-Adhari, said that the damage costs of the coalition raids on the company’s facilities and equipment at Sana’a Airport on Monday exceeded $3 million.

On Monday evening, the coalition fighter jets targeted Sana’a Airport with a series of raids, causing great damage to the airport facilities.
