RIYADH: The Sudan government said it was in talks with Germany’s Lufthansa Consulting over a potential role in restructuring its troubled airline, Bloomberg reported.
“If not through a joint venture, they can help to restructure Sudan Airways so that it can be competitive,” Finance Minister Gibril Ibrahim said in an interview, without providing any additional details.
Sudan Airways is one of the oldest airlines in Africa. The state carrier stands to benefit from the country’s reintegration with the global economy after the end of US restrictions.
The carrier was in difficulty even before the pandemic.
Egyptian carrier EgyptAir agreed a strategic partnership with Sudan Airways last April.
