EgyptAir temporarily suspended its flights to Khartoum Airport due to security disturbances
Today, Saturday, EgyptAir decided to temporarily stop its flights to and from Khartoum Airport, starting for a period of 72 hours, until it is informed of developments in the situation in Sudan.
EgyptAir said in a statement that the suspension of flights comes in light of information received about disturbances in the security situation in Sudan.
The army forces took control of the airport in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, and the airport in the northern city of Meroe.
Currently, the sports city area in Khartoum state and the city of Marawi in northern Sudan are witnessing military clashes between the armed forces and the Rapid Support Forces, in which explosions, exchanges of fire, and plumes of smoke were heard.
No statement has yet been issued by the army or the Rapid Support Forces regarding the military, security and political field developments in the country, at a time when the clashes reached close to the headquarters of the General Command of the Armed Forces and the presidential palace, while the battles caused traffic disruption in Khartoum state. Fears and risks have increased.
