Sudan Airways Cheap Flights & Promo Fares

Sudan Airways is the national airline of the Republic of the Sudan founded in 1946. It is fully owned by the Government of Sudan and is headquartered in Khartoum. Sudan Airways is one of the oldest carriers in Africa. It began scheduled operations in July 1947, a year and five months after the company was formed. Since 1965, the airline has been a member of the International Air Transport Association. It has also been a member of the Arab Air Carriers Organization since 1965 and of the African Airlines Association since 1968.

Aside from scheduled services, of which little information is available online, Sudan Airways also offers several other services. The airline's freighter aircraft operate charter and scheduled cargo, with 58 years of experience in handling perishables (meat, vegetables, and fresh fruits). Even dangerous goods, cold rooms, and freezer services are available, as well as refrigeration for medicines and vaccination. In addition, Sudan Airways has a training center (Sudan Airways Training Center or SATC) established in 1968. The center was a joint venture between Sudan Airways and Middle East Airline MEA. It conducts training in the following: Technical, Flight Operations, Marketing (Ticketing, Reservation, Sale etc.), Safety and Security, Quality, Planning, Modern Management, and Computer and Language Courses. SATC conducts Professional Training and provides its excelling students with Diploma in Aviation.

However, like many airlines, Sudan Airways has had its share of experiences with mishaps. Sudan Airways Flight 109 was an international scheduled flight on route Amman–Damascus–Khartoum that crashed on landing at Khartoum International Airport on June 10, 2008. The incident killed 30 of its 214 occupants. Following the crash, the airline was grounded with indefinite suspension of its operating certificate by the Sudanese government. The decision was withdrawn, and the airline was allowed to resume operations. In late March 2010, all airlines based in Sudan were banned by the European Union from operating into or within the member states.
