Wau- May 9, 2017 [Gurtong] -
The Move came after Aloor Airline Company of South Sudan and BADR Airline of Sudan agreed to join operations in South Sudan and Sudan capital Khartoum.

Today (Tuesday 9th), a delegation led by Ambassador Mayen Dut, paid an assessment visit to Wau airport ahead of the flight launch next Monday.

“We are here with a team from BADR airline as well as a technical team, to assess Wau airport. Next week after the launch, the flight operating route will be Khartoum –Juba – wau.” said Mayen Wol.

Ahmed Osman Abu Shaira, the Airline Chief Executive Officer, called up on both Sudan and South Sudan governments, to establish a coordination office in Wau to ease on processing of direct flights from Wau to Khartoum.
“I request the government of South Sudan to agree with the government of Sudan to establish a coordination office in Wau, to ease on direct flights from Wau to Khartoum, instead of flying though Juba to Khartoum. Come Monday 15th we will be landing in Wau every Monday and Friday.” said Ahmed.

Wau state Information Minister David John Ponis said the move will help the citizens to acquire medical treatment and other services in Khartoum.

BADR airline had direct flights from Wau – Khartoum since 2004 till South Sudan acquired its independence in 2011.
