Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways will resume regular flights between Khartoum International Airport (KRT) and Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) on Tuesday, July 16. Flights are scheduled to depart Khartoum every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday at 12:50 (local time). The airline had previously suspended service to Sudan on June 9 due to security concerns. Dubai-based Emirates also resumed service to Khartoum on Monday, July 8.
Multiple airlines suspended operations in Sudan after Sudanese security forces and affiliated militias on June 3 violently dispersed a sit-in in Khartoum, in which protesters were advocating for a transition to a civilian-led government. More than 128 people were killed and hundreds of others wounded in the assault on the protest camp.
Potentially impacted travelers are advised to monitor developments to the situation and to contact their airline for additional information.
