Air Arabia and Sudan's DAL Group have announced the planned launch of "Air Arabia Sudan", a joint-venture company to be based in Khartoum International Airport. 

Air Arabia Sudan will follow the value-added product offering operated by Air Arabia Group.

The ticket pricing model will be best-in-class and accessible to all income-groups, which empowers travellers to save and spend more wherever they may decide by paying for only the services they want. 

"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," said Sheikh Abdullah Bin Mohamed Al Thani, Chairman of Air Arabia.

 Air Arabia Sudan will operate a fleet of new Airbus A320 aircraft.

All aircraft cabin interiors will be fitted with world-class comfort seats, offering one of the industry’s most spacious economy cabin seat pitches.

Air Arabia’s signature online and mobile phone application-based user interfaces, the product experience, from ticket purchase to punctual arrival at the travel destination, will be quick, convenient and reliable. 

Based in Khartoum, the new company will adopt the low-cost business model operated by Air Arabia Group across its existing network.

Work on securing the relevant approvals and licences is scheduled to commence shortly. More details regarding route network, fleet size and composition, scheduled services and other matters are expected to be communicated in due course.
