SkyUp Airlines, in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine and other state institutions, successfully rescues all 36 of its employees from Sudan with the assistance of international partners.
The airline’s operational activities remain unaffected, despite the unknown status of the aircraft left at Khartoum airport. SkyUp Airlines assures its customers that it continues to operate flights under all current contracts.
As hostilities continue, the skyup cannot conduct a necessary examination and provide conclusions on the situation. However, they follow protocols accepted in the aviation industry and partnership agreements and work within national legislation and international law framework.
They are also collaborating with its partners, including lessors, insurance companies, and aviation authorities. As soon as they have the opportunity to conduct an inspection and provide an assessment of the condition of the aircraft, they will make the information public.
