Afriqiyah Airways launches new route from Benghazi to Khartoum
- Afriqiyah Airways inaugurated services on the 2,200-kilometre route from Benghazi (BEN) on the Libyan Mediterranean coast, to the Sudanese capital of Khartoum (KRT) on 13 November. The airline, which launched two routes to Tunis on 6 November (four weekly departures from Benghazi and thrice-weekly from Sebha, also in Libya), now offers twice-weekly services from Benghazi to Sudan’s second-largest city. The Sudanese consul, Abdul-Halim Omar, who was flew on the inaugural flight, underlined: “The new service is bound to strengthen trade and economic ties between businessmen and investors in both countries, which previously had no direct air link.” Afriqiyah Airways will deploy A319s to operate the route.
