Turkish Airlines has for the first time again started direct flights between Khartoum and Mogadishu in an effort to end tiresome trip between the two countries involving transit to neighbouring countries.

The Airlines which has also for the first time in two decades landed at Mogadishu airport in war-torn Somalia early this year intends to operate direct passenger service from Khartoum to Mogadishu.

It has also reduced its ticket price more than three times the initial price where a passenger travelling from Sudanese capital to Mogadishu used to pay $900 but now they will only pay about $200.

Early last march, Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bosdag was on board the first Turkish flight to Mogadishu few months after Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan – who said he wanted to challenge the idea that the Somali capital was a no-go area visit to Mogadishu last year.

Turkish Airlines now operate a twice-weekly passenger service from Istanbul via Sudan’s capital, Khartoum.
