Sudan: UAEs Flydubai to Launch Flight to Juba

The UAE's government-owned Flydubai airline has announced plans to begin a service to Juba, the capital of South Sudan. The airline said it would start flights on April 21st from its base at Dubai International Airport, and operate services to Juba on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Flydubai's CEO, Ghaith Al Ghaith, said the new service would open up previously untapped markets in Africa. He said his company was pleased to start operations to Juba as it enables it to further broaden the airline's network in Africa and open up more routes to previously under-served markets. The airline has recently launched flights to Baghdad, Bucharest, Sana'a in Yemen and Taif in Saudi Arabia.
