Felix Airways was incorporated with the objective to take over Yemenia’s domestic network, which was not profitable in the past. Yemenia has transferred its domestic traffic rights to Felix Airways, and converted to a 25 percent equity stake, which might create certain issues if Felix Airways expands internationally in the future. Yemen Airways, released some of its senior staff to operate and manage the Felix Airways.Executives: Engineer Mohammed Abudllah Al-Arasha (Chief Executive Officer)
