Ammon News - The Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of the Civil Aviation Regulatory Authority (CARC), Captain Haitham Misto, confirmed on Saturday that Jordan “has not yet been informed” of Yemen Airways suspending its flights from Sanaa to Jordan during October.

Four executives said Yemen's national airline will suspend the only international commercial flight from Yemen's capital Sanaa in response to the Houthi administration blocking the carrier from withdrawing its funds in Sanaa banks, according to Reuters.

Yemenia currently operates 6 flights per week between Sanaa and Jordan, Misto said, noting that the CARC has granted permits to operate flights according to demand.

Yemenia will halt six weekly flights to Jordan in October, the company officials said, after negotiations with the Houthis failed to secure the release of airline funds which executives at the carrier said amounted to $80 million.

Yemenia had proposed the Houthi administration take 70% of the funds while the remaining 30% would go to the internationally recognised government, Reuters sources said.

Yemenia said in a statement that it had been unable to withdraw its funds in Sanaa banks for several months and called on the Houthi authorities to lift restrictions "illegally" imposed on its assets.

Yemenia resumed flights from Sanaa to Amman, in April 2022.
