Dubai-based carriers Emirates and flydubai have cancelled flights to and from the Sudanese capital of Khartoum for two days.

Dubai’s flagship carrier Emirates said flights to and from Khartoum (EK 733/734) stand cancelled on Thursday, October 21, and Friday, October 22.

“Customers with the final destination Khartoum will not be accepted for travel until October 23 from any point on the Emirates network. Affected customers should contact their booking agents for rebooking options. Emirates regrets any inconvenience caused,” Emirates said in a statement.
