RAK Airways to launch flights to Sudan in December
By Andy Sambidge
RAK Airways announced on Tuesday it will launch flights to Sudan next month, expanding its route network to 10 destinations since the carrier's relaunch last year.
Starting on December 15, RAK Airways will offer three flights a week to Sudan's capital city Khartoum, it said in a statement.
RAK Airways re-launched operations a year ago with two routes to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and Calicut, India.
Over the last twelve months the airline has focused on extending its route network across the GCC, Indian sub-continent and North Africa.
RAK Airways CEO Omar Jahameh said: "We had a clear mandate to fly to 10 destinations within one year of re-launching our operations.
"With the introduction of our flights to Khartoum, we have achieved our objective and laid the foundation for a successful and profitable future for the airline."
He added: "Khartoum presents compelling business opportunities and marks our commitment to furthering our presence in North Africa."
Last month, RAK Airways announced the introduction of flights to Peshawar and Lahore in Pakistan, Kuwait and an increase in frequency to its Doha flights to seven times a week.
