Ministry of Transport refutes allegations of Yemenia Airways asset freeze


An official source at the Ministry of Transport in Sanaa denied what was stated regarding the Ministry of Transport’s freezing of the assets of ‘Yemenia’ Airways.

The source confirmed, in a statement to Saba News Agency, that Yemenia’s assets are not frozen, and all operating expenses, including salaries, incentives, and entitlements, are paid to all employees of the company on a regular basis.

He pointed out that additional control measures have been taken under the supervision of those in charge of the company in Sana’a in order to preserve the company’s funds and not transfer liquidity without controls, stressing the ministry’s keenness to continue the company’s activities in a way that serves all the Yemeni people.

He confirmed that the recent measures taken by the company’s leadership in Aden to restrict sales in Sanaa is an arbitrary measure that contributes to increasing the suffering of Yemeni travelers in general and the northern regions in particular, and placing additional restrictions and obstacles in front of the Yemeni people.

Calling on the company’s leadership in Aden to reverse its arbitrary decision and lift all restrictions on the Yemeni people, the source stressed that the ministry will take all legal measures to preserve the rights of travelers, holding the company’s leadership in Aden responsible for all the consequences resulting from its irresponsible decisions.

The source also held the US-Saudi aggression coalition responsible for continuing to obstruct the opening of Sana’a International Airport, calling on the United Nations to break its silence regarding the aggression coalition’s continued closure of Sana’a airport and its disregard for the suffering of the Yemeni people.
