Airfare to Sanaa, Yemen

Include Hotels for the Best Deals

One of the oldest continually inhabited cities in the world (it was supposedly settled by Shem, a son of Noah), Sann’a has a historic UNESCO World Heritage old center, and fantastic shopping at the Souk al-Milh. Nearby, travelers should visit the Imam’s Palace.

Airfare to Sanaa will be the cheapest on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday. Mondays are popular with business travellers and weekends are key dates for holidaymakers wanting the longest trips possible – avoid these dates.

Also consider flights into Aden, Yemen. To get between the cities, you can grab a spot on a train, bus or flight. Look for cheap flights on no frills airlines. Air Arabia flies to Sanaa. Although it will take longer to reach your destination, a bus or train could save you enough cash to make it worth your while.

Another possible money-saving tip is to look for flights that go through Dubai, U.A.E., or another major gateway city instead of flying direct. Because there are more flights – and competition – from these cities on low budget airlines, you can save some cash over flying non-stop to your destination. It is very common to layover in one of these main cities.

Finally, consider traveling on a lesser-known carrier. Yemenia is the national airline. However, Lufthansa, EgyptAir, Turkish Airlines and other airlines also stop in Sanaa.

The most expensive air tickets to Sanaa are found during peak holiday travel times, such as the New Year. Also be aware of national events or festivals, which can also cause ticket prices to rise.

Summary of Money Saving Tips:

  • Fly mid-week
  • Book your holiday during the off-peak season
  • Consider flying into Aden, Yemen and traveling overland to Sanaa via train or bus
  • Look for flights that go through large cities, with many flights
  • Check out carriers besides the national airline – they may undercut the monopolistic competition
