A Sudanese carrier, Sun Air Aviation has resumed flying to South Sudan capital Juba after 10 years.

The airline’s Air Bus A330-200 touched down at Juba International Airport at 2:00 pm local time on its first trip to Juba on Monday.

Sun Air’s Head of Business Development, Mohamed Saifeldin M. Saad Omer led a team of businessmen and aviation authorities from Khartoum.

Omer told the reporters in Juba that Sun Air would not only promote commerce and investment between the two sisterly nations but also develop capacity.

Sun Air Aviation started in Juba with support from On-Time Aviation Services, a ground handler in the South Sudanese capital.

“The confidence placed in us by Sun Air sends a strong signal to other investors in the area and beyond that, while a young nation, South Sudan has the necessary brains and ability to manage complicated services,” Ceaser Michaya, the Chief Executive and Managing Director of On-Time Aviation Services stated.

The event was graced by the CEO of South Sudan Civil Aviation Authority David Subek Dada and many other leaders in the Aviation Industry in South Sudan.
