Flights to and from Socotra are not available for online booking. The only way to book the flight is via a travel agent located in Yemen, Socotra, or at any Yemen Airways offices. The reason why it might seem complicated is that mainly because of the current political situation in Yemen.

Charter Flight

A charter flight from Abu Dhabi, UAE, is the most reliable and convenient way to get to Socotra. We regularly use this route for most of our clients who wish to visit our island.

Destination Flight # Day Departure/Arrival
Abu Dhabi (AUH) 476 Monday 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM
Socotra (SCT) 477 Monday 02:00 PM – 05:00PM

Yemen Airways

Flying to Socotra via Yemen airways is suitable for a group of travellers. The flight is from Cairo, Egypt, with one stopover in Seyion international airport.

Destination Flight # Day Departure/Arrival
Cairo (CAI) IY607 Wednesday 02:00 AM – 08:45 AM
Socotra (SCT) FIY606 Wednesday 9:45 AM – 02:40 PM

We are working on establishing another route with the arrival of the Socotra Dream cruise. More details will be provided later this year.

Please note that flights departing from Socotra can be delayed due to the wind speed/situation on the sea. It is recommended that you allow an extra day in Cairo or Abu Dhabi to avoid missing your flight back home.
