In a statement published on its website, the Qatari national carrier announced the resumption of its flights to Khartoum as of 11 May.

"Qatar Airways is pleased to announce that it will resume services to Khartoum, Sudan, with four weekly flights starting 11 May 2021, increasing to daily service from 1 June 2021," reads the statement.

The company added that its flights to Khartoum will "be operated by the airline’s state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner".
