The Emirates Airlines has suspended flights to and from Khartoum, Sudan due to the ongoing political unrest.
Sudanese protesters have been giving their military backed leadership headaches since December 2018, protesting against the rise in the prices of basic commodities.
The oteutest led to the ouster of long time leader Omar Al-Bashir in April.
The military took over after that, but things have not been rosy since the protests continued demanding for more freedom and overhaul of the Al-Bashir networks.
Below is the statement from Emirates Airline website to clients.
Suspension of flights between Dubai and Khartoum until 10 June.
The operations of Emirates flights to and from Khartoum until 10 June are suspended due to political unrest in Sudan.
In addition, flights operated by our codeshare partner flydubai to and from Khartoum and Port Sudan have been cancelled.
Until further notice, customers connecting onto Emirates flights to Khartoum and/or Flydubai flights to Khartoum or Port Sudan will not be accepted for travel at origin.
We are monitoring the situation closely, and aim to give customers as much notice as possible if there are any further changes to our operations.
Affected customers should contact their booking agent or local Emirates office for assistance.
