Air Arabia has announced a joint venture with DAL Group, a Sudanese conglomerate, to launch Air Arabia Sudan.

Headquartered at Khartoum International Airport, Air Arabia Sudan will follow the value-added product offering operated by Air Arabia Group. The ticket pricing model will be accessible to all income groups, which empowers travellers to save and only pay for the services they want.

Air Arabia chairman Sheikh Abdullah Bin Mohamed Al Thani said: “We are delighted at Air Arabia Group to partner with DAL Group on this joint venture to launch Sudan’s new low-cost carrier. 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.

"We thank DAL Group and the Sudanese Civil Aviation Authority for their trust, and we look forward to working hand in hand to develop the new airline, which will serve as a new value-for-money air travel option for the country.”

Our decision to partner with a leading pioneer of low-cost air travel is driven by our core commitment to perpetually contribute towards realising Sudan’s long-term human and economic growth and development potential.


“By attracting top-flight foreign direct investment to our country at a pivotal point in our national history, we do so out of an unflinching commitment to our longstanding mission: to open up abundant new employment vistas for Sudanese youth and highly skilled professionals alike. It gives me immense pleasure to join hands with Air Arabia Group in this new venture, and we look forward to the launch of Air Arabia Sudan.”
