HOW TO GET THERE
Since the reopening of the commercial air route to Socotra, the ABU DHABI - 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 Abu Dhabi that is scheduled for every TUESDAY.
It's a governmental charter flight and they 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.
