Previously, air travel was associated with airlifts and food drops. This was primarily to support humanitarian operations that resulted in airfields all over Southern Sudan.

Since the end of hostilities and signing of the CPA, a number of private companies have began flying to various locations inside South Sudan with Juba, capital of Central Equatoria State and seat of the Government of Southern Sudan, fast becoming a hub.

In Pre - 2005, there were very few airlines flying to Juba. If you were in East Africa and wanted to get to Juba, you had to go through Lokichogio from Wilson Airport in neighbouring Kenya and use an ALS flight to Juba.

Now, you can practically fly to Juba via Nairobi, Entebbe, Khartoum and Addis Ababa any day of the week. Some flights are available twice a day every day like JetLink Express which operates from Nairobi while the other operators fly an average of six times a week.

From Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, apart from JetLink Express airlines, The East African also operates daily while Kenya Airways launched flights from 7th June 2010.

Entebbe airport also serves Air Uganda who flies to Juba from Monday to Saturdays. The Ethiopian Airlines from Addis Ababa flies to Juba four times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

There are also flights that connect Juba to Khartoum like the Marsland Aviation, Feder Airlines and the United Nations’ World Food Programme (UN WFP) flights. To travel to the other states of South Sudan Air Connection (SSAC), Feder Airlines, Sun Air and the UN WFP Flights will also get you there.

With increased variety and service providers in the travel industry air fares have continued to go down from $800 dollars for a return flight from East Africa when some airlines began operating back in 2005 to an average of between USD$ 500 – USD$600.

Airlines: Frequent flyers to Juba are Fly540, Kenya Airways, Air Uganda, JetLink, East African Safari Air Express, Feeder Airlines, South Sudan Air Connection (SSAC), Sun Air, Ethiopian Airlines and Marsland Aviation.
