Managing director Obaj William Olau said the flights will operate three times per week.

The company will operate two cargo planes and one passenger jet on the route.

Ticket prices will start from 600 South Sudanese pounds, about US$150.

Olau said the airline also plans to offer direct flights from Wau to Entebbe in Uganda.

Speaking during the official launch of the new airline service to Wau, Western Bahr el Ghazal state governor Rizik Zackaria Hassan described the event as an important step in the campaign to relocate the nation’s capital from Juba to Wau.

He said it’s hoped the new airline service will stimulate economic growth in the region and provide momentum for Wau’s bid to become the new national capital.

The launch was attended by national legislative assembly speaker Manase Magok, as well as the speaker of the council of states, Bol Chan, and the national minister for humanitarian affairs, Lual Achuil.

The new airline is operated by SKA South Africa.

      I think Wau Airport meet most of the airport international standards with the capacity to accommodate all types of commercial planes. Government should quickly finalize the process for Dubai Air cargo for a direct flight from World International Market(United Arabic Emirate in Dubai) to Wau in South Sudan, local traders can easily access all types of goods

      Relocating Juba city to Wau is just increasing the insecurity of Wau from 70% to 100%

      Stop Governor Raziki is braging as if he was the one who proposed the relocation we alll understand Kirr and Raziki wil not come again to power.
