Yemenia - Yemen Airways ( _ar. الخطوط الجوية اليمنية) is the national airline of Yemen, based in Sana'a. It operates scheduled domestic services as well as international services to more than 30 destinations in Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and Asia. Its main base is Sana'a International Airport (SAH), with a hub at Aden Airport (ADE).

Yemenia is a member of the Arab Air Carriers Organization.


The airline was established on 4 August 1961 as Yemen Airlines and started operations in 1962. It was reorganized and renamed Yemen Airways in 1972, following nationalisation. The Yemenia name was adopted on 1 July 1978, following the joint establishment early in 1977 of a new airline by the governments of the Yemen Arab Republic, now Republic of Yemen, and Saudi Arabia. The operations of Aden-based Alyemda have been incorporated. The airline is owned by the Government of Yemen (51%) and the government of Saudi Arabia (49%).
