HOW TO GET THERE

Since the reopening of the commercial air route to Socotra, the DUBAI-SOCOTRA connection has become 100% reliable allowing tourism on the island once again. Today you can reach Socotra with a weekly NON-STOP DIRECT FLIGHT from Dubai that is scheduled for every Monday.

Felix airways, second national carrier of Yemen, do not offer online booking yet.  This unfortunately means that in order to get a seat on this in demand flight you need to be assisted by a local agency. To ease this process we use our local contacts to help make your flight reservations from Dubai to Hadibo.
