UAE’s Air Arabia and Sudan-based conglomerate DAL Group have announced the planned launch of  a JV company to be based in Khartoum International Airport.

The JV company ‘Air Arabia Sudan’ will operate a fleet of new Airbus A320 aircraft. Based in Khartoum, the new company will adopt the low-cost business model operated by Air Arabia Group across its existing network, with the ticket pricing model accessible to all income-groups.

Work on securing the relevant approvals and licenses is scheduled to commence shortly.

The carrier announced that details regarding route network, fleet size and composition, scheduled services and other matters are expected to be communicated in due time.

Sheikh Abdullah Bin Mohamed Al Thani, chairman of Air Arabia, said: “We are confident that Air Arabia Sudan will add significant value to the air transport sector of Sudan and directly contribute to the growth of the local economy and the development of the travel and tourism sector.”

“Our decision to partner with a leading pioneer of low-cost air travel is driven by our core commitment to perpetually contribute towards realizing Sudan’s long-term human and economic growth and development potential,” added Osama Daoud Abdellatif, DAL Group’s chairman.

Air Arabia reported a net profit of Dhs451m for the first six months ending June 30, compared to Dhs44m registered in H1 2021. Meanwhile, more than 5.2 million passengers flew with the carrier between January and June across five of its hubs.
