Hello everyone ! welcome to the local flight report from Aden to Sana'a .
The date of this flight is quite old since it was three years ago but i would like to share it with you to see such very rare FR to see.
Because of the war happened last year in Yemen , Aden international was mostly damaged and the presidential aircraft B747SP been destroyed there as well however, there are some flights nowadays from Aden operated by Felix airways that started it's operations few days ago and sometimes by Yemenia for Amman flights .
The flights between Sana'a and Aden also been effected so there isn't any until now .

Let's start ..

After waking up early in the morning i'm on my way to the Airport

Aden - ADE


Sana'a - SAH



It was very short flight and nice as well , cabin was the standard of a two star airline and maybe more ! .
There was no IFE and cabin crew are friendly as usual . Sana'a airport is simply when you see can't imagine that it's the capital airport ! the only good thing there is people who are working there are so friendly .

    No need for many explanations with that many pictures :)
    So sad that your country is now torn apart.
    Thanks for sharing this unique archive report !

    Hello Alosh!

    Aden looks (or "looked"?? I'm not up to date with the situation in the area) like a beautiful airport!

    Yemenia's seat upholstery and antimacassar make me think that all airlines have better taste than my local airlines!

    So sad people have to endure all that violence there, as if making ends meet and paying your bills wasn't hard enough. :(

    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for this FR.
    The service is just fine for such a short flight.
    Too bad most of the things visible in this FR have been damaged by war.
