The flights from Dubai to Sudan were cancelled due to some safety issues
A spokesperson for Dubai Airports gave information regarding the assistance given by the Airports authority to the passengers who got stuck in the Dubai International Airport. He added that all the passengers from other countries who arrived at the Dubai International Airport were given all kinds of support.
The authorities announced that the Sudanese passengers can stay at the temporary accommodations provided until the availability of flights to travel back to Khartoum or till they decide to travel to some other places.
The Airport of Dubai is clearly observing the condition in Sudan so as to decide what to do in the days ahead. For the time being it has decided to hold the flights because it places much importance on the safety of the crew and the passengers. Once the situation comes under control and things get restored the passengers can resume their journey without much delay, he said.
The flights have been cancelled due to the outbreak of a fight between the Rapid Support Forces and the army in Khartoum and in some remote areas. The clashes between the two broke out on the morning of Saturday, April 15 and are still continuing.
The Khartoum International Airport is now under the control of the Rapid Support Forces. The Khartoum Airport also witnessed the fight between the two rival forces and reports say that many civilian flights have been damaged.
It has been reported that the airspace of Sudan is currently closed and almost 20 planes are reportedly damaged or destroyed on the runway of the Khartoum International Airport. Saudia Airlines has stopped flights to Khartoum after one of its aircraft got shot while getting ready to take off from Khartoum.
Due to the worsening situation of civil disturbance in Khartoum, the Dubai-based airlines, Flydubai and Emirates have suspended their passenger flights to the city until April 30. Air Arabia Airlines of Sharjah has also suspended its flights to Khartoum until further notice.
The latest announcement from the Emirates says that the customers who connect to Flydubai and Emirates for flights to Sudan will not be permitted to travel. The authorities also expressed their apology if they have caused any trouble to their customers.
