NEA announces more orders for Antonov aircraft


Khartoum. The new CEO of the Sudanese national carrier NEA Northeast African Airways, Mohammed Ahmad Keir, today

officially announced the firm up an order for six more Antonov An-148/158 to be delivered until Q2 2015. How many of each was not

mentioned in the interview he held with a local newspaper. This contract also includes an attached option for six more to probably

replace the Fokker 50 fleet. 

Keir said, the Antonov is a perfect fit for Sudan and the local operations since its design leads to high rate of utilisation as it can 

operate on gravel runways while also operating as a modern plane into African metropolitan regions like Cairo. It is offering an out-

standing profitabilty also and an incompetitable range if needed. 


Just curious, how do you make Juba a focus airport when you only have flight from KRT - JUB  :blink:

It's more about getting the most traffic out of the route than having many different connections. :P
