The UAE-backed separatists controlling Aden’s international airport are refusing to let the state airline refuel or maintain its aircraft.
Yemenia flights must make a 50-minute detour through neighbouring Djibouti to complete its three remaining routes, costing the company hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Although the Southern Transition Council, which controls Aden’s airport, is in a coalition with Yemen’s Saudi-backed government forces, the armed group wants independence for southern Yemen.
