Yemen’s state-run airline suspends the only route out of Sanaa over Houthi restrictions on its funds

  • Yemen Airways has suspended its only air route from Sanaa to Amman due to Houthi restrictions on its funds, leading to the cancellation of commercial flights between the two capitals. The airline blames the Houthis for withholding $80 million in funds from their accounts in Sanaa, causing significant damage to its operations.
  • The Houthi ban on the airline's funds is linked to "illegal and unreasonable demands," according to Yemen Airways. This dispute coincides with the ongoing peace negotiations between the rebels and Saudi Arabia, suggesting a potential obstacle to reaching an agreement.
  • The incident also highlights broader violations by the Houthis, as they barred activists from boarding flights at Sanaa airport. These violations are part of a series of actions that Mwatana for Human Rights has condemned.
