Sudan Airways resumes direct flights to Nairobi

6/15/2005 10:34pm

NAIROBI, Kenya, June 15, 200 (PANA) -- Sudan Airways resumed direct flights to Nairobi on Wednesday after a nine-year absence, promising to increase its frequencies in line with a revised air services charter signed by the two neighbours.

The inaugural flight from Khartoum arrived here mid- morning Wednesday to a high-profile reception by Kenyan Airport Authority executives and Kenyan ministers, who hailed the arrival as the first step towards awakening the once sleeping economic giant.

"Sudan's reawakening would benefit all of us in this region. It is like awakening a sleeping economic giant. This is the first step towards easing travel among the business community and promoting trade," said Kenyan Environment Minister Kalonzo Musyoka.

Kenya and Sudan are operating on a recently renewed Bilateral Air Services agreement signed 30 years ago, which guides aviation services cooperation between them.

The agreement has been updated to include full liberalisation of air transport.

The inaugural flight, which arrived in Nairobi with 102 passengers on board, including top Sudanese military officials, politicians and business executives, will operate one flight a week to Nairobi via Juba in the Southern Sudan.
