Sudan’s civil aviation authorities have decided to open the eastern airspace for global navigation while intense clashes continue between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF).

The civil aviation authority had exempted humanitarian aid flights and evacuation flights after obtaining permission from the relevant authorities, as stated in the NOTAM (Notice to Airmen) bulletin.
Intense clashes persist between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF). The airspace reopeninig comes as the civilian forces convene in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, in a new attempt to halt the war that has been ongoing in Sudan since mid-April.
