"We urge the warring parties to work with the UN Special Envoy to reopen the safe and secure operation of Sana’a airport for humanitarian and commercial flights. Aid delivery to the airport is now at a standstill. We urge both the authorities in Sana’a and the Saudi-led coalition to keep Sana’a airport out of the crossfire and to ensure that it can function again for medical and commercial flights."
