First flight on Sana'a Airport since 2015 delayed last-minute due to Saudi sabotage

Countries of the Saudi-led aggression coalition have refused to grant Yemen Airways a landing permit for the flight, which was scheduled to arrive at Sana’a International Airport on Sunday April 24, said Raed Talib Jabal, Undersecretary of the General Authority for Civil Aviation and Meteorology.

Jabal confirmed in a statement to the Yemeni news agency Saba that the countries of aggression are “reneging on their commitments by refusing to give Yemen Airways the landing permit for the commercial flight that was scheduled to arrive today.”

He said it was “a violation of the truce declared by the UN envoy to Yemen.”

“The coalition of aggression seeks to deliberately further the suffering of the Yemeni people, while seeking to mislead international public opinion on the humanitarian issue,” he said.
