Sana’a International Airport

The Sana’a International Airport is located about 15 km from downtown.

The airport code is SAH.


When coming into Sana’a, you can expect a “from the airport” taxi ride fee of maybe 2000 riyals (10 dollars). This was the cost for about a 20km trip from the airport.  But, keep in mind, that prices can vary.

If possible, go with a taxi company taxi to get a fair price, insha Allah.

See Taxis under “Traveling –Inside Yemen–Taxi Companies” Tag for information about a few taxi companies.
