” Due to commercial reasons, all Qatar Airways flights to and from Khartoum, Republic of Sudan will be temporarily suspended effective 1 April 2019 until further notice,” reads a statement twitted by Qatar Airways on Thursday.

Due to the boycott imposed by Saudi Arabia and UAE on Qatar, a flight from Doha to Khartoum has become very expensive, in addition, it takes more than seven hours.

The statement asked ticketed passengers travelling to/from Khartoum after 31 March 2019 to contact their point of sale for refund.

For the passengers with a partially utilised ticket, the airliner said it would offer them alternative flight options.
