The airlines operating the flights are Felix Airways and Yemenia Airlines.

The reservation for tourists can be arranged only by certified Yemen travel agency.

Formalities regarding the permission to enter Socotra and visa can be administered only by an ecotourism agency situated in Socotra. Be aware that your passport must not contain Israel visa or Israel entry/exit stamp!
