yemenia landing at Socotra
As of June 1999 one can now fly to Socotra, they even call it an international airport. Keeping in mind that going to Socotra is what I would call adventure travel - so, consider even the flight on Yemenia is a high adventure. In fact the 2 internal flights to Socotra were very nice with a warm kind crew who told me were the best seats were to photograph Island. The flights were completely full, ever seat, every available spot for hand luggage and I was the only foreigner on my flight. The flight goes into Hadibu, which is the main village on Socotra. The flights are now two days a week but going to three. Now you fly from Sana’a or Aden on Mondays the flight is from Aden and on Fridays Sana’a . The cost of the flight to Socotra from Sana’a is $295. I booked my flight through a friend that works at a local travel agency in Sana’a at and paid $175 and think it is possible to get the ticket cheaper if you book in conjunction with the international flight to Sann’a if you fly in on Yemenia airlines.
The Friday flight leaves Sana’a at 05:00 and is flight # IY420. Going back to Sana’a it is on flight IY421 leaving at 08:45. The Mon Flight leaves Aden at 05:00 lands at 08:00 and is flight number IY422.
The airport code by the way for Socotra is SCT in case you are looking.
Mr. AL-Turki and Mohamed Shaif from Yamanat Tours helped me get my tickets
