Dubai: Emirates flights to and from Khartoum remain suspended from October 25 to 27 after armed forces detained Sudan's prime minister on Monday.

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

Following Emirates, flydubai has also cancelled flights until October 27.

Earlier this week, Emirates and flydubai had temporarily suspended flights to that destination, scheduled for October 21 and October 22.
