Khartoum Airport

Khartoum Airport

If travelling to Sudan by air you will inevitably use Khartoum Airport that is located a short distance from the centre of Khartoum and Omdurman. It is served by British Airways, EgyptAir, Ethiopian Airlines, Kenya Airlines, Lufthansa etc as well as Sudan Airlines itself and many other airlines. It also serves as a military airport, however is due to be replaced by a new airport in the next few years. The new facility is located 40km south of Khartoum and is designed to eventually replace the existing airport with an initial passenger capacity of six million per annum in its first phase, nine million in the second phase, and finally 12 million passengers in its final phase. Development plans include two runways, a passenger terminal and an airport hotel.

One of two international airports, the other being Port Sudan Airport near the Red Sea (Sudan has twenty-five airports in total), Khartoum International Airport is variously described as a 'nightmare airport' 'bureaucracy gone mad' 'rude and discourteous' 'no information boards' etc few have anything positive to say about the airport or the staff there, although they can be more amenable if slipping some cash into their hands. The video (below) shows a flight into Khartoum airport as it makes it's approach and lands at Khartoum.
