SOUTH SUDAN CARRIER 748 AIRLINES SHUTS DOWN

Kenyan company 748 airlines is one of the few private airlines operating in South Sudan has announced it is shutting down all services due to the worsening exchange rate for the Sudanese pound.

For those in Unity state, the airline flew between Juba and Bentiu every Tuesday and Saturday. Only one other airline, South Sudan Air, flies to Bentiu.

In an interview, Malual Tuong, the branch manager of Unity statessaid, “what I want to tell to the foreigners, is this airline has been used by so many indigenous people .The reason we are closing is because we are facing a lot of challenges in the market due to the dollars high rates. That is why we stopped. The decision came from the board of Directorate saying we should break for while”.

There are hopes of resuming the operation again in the future.
