Marsland Aviation airline grounded

Marsland Aviation, a major Sudanese airline, has suspended operations apparently caused by US sanctions. German carrier Lufthansa is ending flights to Sudan on Jan 19, following KLM which has already ended direct flights between Amsterdam and Khartoum.

One of the main reasons for the fall of Marsland Aviation is that it has been selling tickets in Sudanese pounds but found converting proceeds into US dollars difficult due to the shortage of the currency in Sudan. US sanctions also meant that the airline’s three leased 737s could not be registered in Sudan but had to be listed in Georgia and Gambia at double the cost.
