Sudan announced on Tuesday, that it is in talks with Airbus over a deal to supply eight new planes to its state carrier.
According to a statement from Sudan’s finance ministry, a delegation representing the European manufacturer has met the ministers of finance and infrastructure to discuss the deal and revamp Sudan Airways’ fleet
The document further explains that Airbus has also proposed to provide technical support, without giving details on the financial aspects of the deal.
The manufacturer has commented on the proposal.
Sudan Airways has suffered heavily over the years from trade sanctions imposed by Washington in 1997, with most of its fleet grounded.
Washington lifted the sanctions in October 2017 but the airline has still not been fully operational due to difficulties in procuring spare parts.
