Why Fly with Sudan Airways

How to Check in

Travelers flying with Sudan Airways will need to check-in at the airport as the airline does not yet support online check-ins, although they may look to introduce this feature at some point in the future. Be sure to arrive at the airport with plenty of time to spare in order to ensure the check-in process runs smoothly. At most airports Sudan Airways check-in counters open 2 hours before scheduled departures and close 45 minutes before.
