Felix Airways Limited, also known as Al Saeeda, (both meaning "Happy," from the Roman term for Yemen, Arabia Felix)[1] is a low-cost airline based in Sana'a, Yemen. It was established in 2008 as a subsidiary of flag carrier Yemenia by the Islamic Bank for Development, to serve the growing market for low-cost travel in the region.[2]

Operations have been severely disrupted since 2015 due to the ongoing military conflict affecting its hub at Sana'a International Airport.[3][4]
