I only found one other original article that corroborates this but I would like to see what the U.S. and English governments have to say.
SANA’A, Oct. 30 (Saba) – No UPS cargo planes left Yemen to other countries in the last days and there are no direct flights from Yemen to the United Kingdom or the United States, a Yemeni official said, after allegations that British and U.S. officials had found suspicious packages on planes that originated in Yemen.
The official wondered how the media mentioned the name of Yemen reporting that an explosive device was found on board a cargo plane that landed in London coming from Yemen.
UPS planes never land or take off in Yemen, the official made clear.
The security measures at Yemeni airports are tightened and the authorities search passengers and luggage well, the official said, adding that Yemen has recently installed modern checking systems that can detect dangerous or suspicious materials to the safety of passengers and planes.
