The last European airline to offer direct flights to Sudan will end service in January. A document that was released on Sunday says that the airline is ending its service for economic reasons.
Flights between Khartoum and Frankfurt will end on January 19, according to the letter signed by the airline’s Sudan general manager.
The airline has offered these flights for 51 years. Twelve staff members will lose their jobs.
Several other carriers have ended service to Khartoum, citing economic reasons: KLM ended flights between Khartoum and Amsterdam earlier in 2013, and Marsland suspended operations to Juba, Cairo, and three airports in the Darfur region.
