Israeli Aircraft Flies Over Sudanese Air Space for First Time

in Economy & Innovation

In its inaugural journey, an Israeli airplane flew over Sudan for the first time en route to Kinshasa in the Congo. In the past, Israeli aircrafts have been forbidden to fly over African countries, forced to land in Jordan or another country so that they are not logged as Israeli flights. However, after a recent meeting between the heads of Israel and Sudan in Uganda, the air space has been opened to Israeli planes, with the exception of El Al airlines, who dawn the Israeli flag on their planes.

The move shows progress between the two countries, and after the meeting, there is potential for a new relationship between Israel and Sudan. Sudan is a Muslim country with about 43 million people. While relations have not been diplomatic in the past, the country heads might be working together in an attempt to modernize the country, and hopefully bringing a connection for good.
