According to Wikipedia: "On 29 April 2015, the airport was the target of severe bombardment from the Saudi Arabian air force. The only runway and the passenger terminal building have been severely damaged and are unusable for the foreseeable future."

Airport Overview

by YemenYahoo
"Don't believe the crazy stories you hear about Sanaa Airport. I didn't sleep there, so I can't comment on sleeping comfort, but the airport is clean and very convenient due to its small size. And the staff at the airport are absolutely great. The friendliest people you can find in ANY airport in the world.

Yes, some staff are in military type uniforms. Is it scary though? Not AT ALL. They are so nice, as helpful as they can be, and you will never feel THREATENED by them.

I didn't use the bathrooms so I don't know if they're clean or not, but the overall airport appears extremely clean. It's not the most high-tech appearing airport, but believe me, you won't find a more convenient airport anywhere. I didn't feel like I had to run 5 miles to catch my flight. Everything is so accessible.

The security guards are super nice.

Don't worry about missing your flight at this airport. They will hold the flight for you. Where else will they do this nowadays?!

Also, I don't think there are screens displaying flight times/departures, etc., but ask any one of the staff, and you'll be in the know.

Someone is always there to help you.

Yes, the counter airlines staff speak English. Others might not. But then again, how many staff members at LaGuardia know Arabic?!

Also, they want tips to help you with your luggage, but don't worry about them stealing your stuff. This is unheard of in Yemen.

Overall, the safest country, the nicest people..and the same can be said about the airport."
