July 09, 2019: Emirates has resumed flights to Khartoum, the capital of Sudan, from July 8, 2019. Currently, Emirates operates a B777ER on the route.
"After closely monitoring the situation in Sudan and conducting an exhaustive review of all operational factors, we have decided to resume our services to Khartoum. This will help support local business and increase access to international markets, as well as benefit passengers connecting to our global network," said Orhan Abbas, Emirates' senior vice president commercial operations, Africa.
The daily service between Dubai and Khartoum will once again provide both business and leisure travellers in Sudan, global connectivity through the airline's network, particularly to destinations in the Middle East, West Asia, United States, and the Far East, with one convenient flight connection at its Dubai hub. Key destinations for travellers from Sudan include Dubai and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), Malaysia, China, United Kingdom, and the United States.
Last month, Emirates has suspended flights to and from Sudan following political unrest in the capital. The carrier also ceased flights operated by the company's code-share partner flydubai.
