Sudan Airways domestic flights to be suspended until further notice

Posted 15 November 2016 · Add Comment

The Sudan Civil Aviation Authority (SCAA) has ordered Sudan Airways to suspend all domestic flights until further notice, reports ch-aviation.

The SCAA said in a statement issued Sunday, November 14, that the state-owned airline, during the month of September, had ignored a government directive setting the price of fares to the towns of El Fasher and Geneina. The artificially low prices subsequently distorted an already difficult local market to the detriment of competing carriers, the regulator added.

As it stands, Sudan Airways will only be allowed to resume domestic flights once it has provided the SCAA with proof it has accounted for the undercharges in its financial records.
