Getting to Socotra

I have a friend who is really keen to get to Socotra. Has anyone got any recent information on any or the best ways to get there. Organised tour from Egypt seems possible but any info gratefully received. They would like to leave asap.

Looks amazing.......

From the linked article.......

As of now, the only way you can get to Socotra Island is by flying from either Seiyun, Yemen or from Cairo, Egypt – with a layover in Seiyun. Yemen Airways (Yemenia) is the only airline flying to Socotra and currently, it only has one flight a week.

Looks like Yemen is unavoidable..............

Thanks Andy. They had this article but we're wondering if anyone had first hand info. I think they are going with it anyway. Amazing looking trip.
