The primary airport in Sudan for international flights is at Khartoum (KRT). There are a number of airports in Sudan. However, not all Sudan airports have regularly scheduled flights. We do not list the smallest Sudan airports, since there is no way to provide you flights from those airports. AirGorilla offers flights, hotels, and rental car reservations for Sudan.

Sudan (or The Sudan; officially the Republic of the Sudan or Republic of Sudan) is the largest country by area in Africa and the largest Arab country by area. It is bordered by Egypt to the north, the Red Sea to the northeast, Eritrea and Ethiopia to the east, Kenya and Uganda to the southeast, Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Central African Republic to the southwest, Chad to the west, and Libya to the northwest. It is the tenth largest country in the world by area.

The terrain is generally flat plains, though there are mountains in the east and west. The climate is tropical in the south; arid desert conditions in the north, with a rainy season from April to October. Soil erosion and desertification are environmental hazards.

Currently oil is Sudan's main export, and the production is increasing dramatically. Agriculture production remains Sudan's most important sector, employing 80% of the work force and contributing 39% of GDP, but most farms remain rain-fed and susceptible to drought. Chronic instability including the long-standing civil war between the Muslim north and the Christian/animist south, adverse weather, and weak world agricultural prices ensure that much of the population will remain at or below the poverty line for years.

The northern states cover most of the Sudan and include most of the urban centers. Most of the 22 million Sudanese who live in this region are Arabic-speaking Muslims, though the majority also use a traditional non-Arabic mother tongue (e.g. Nubian, Beja, Fur, Nuban, Ingessana, etc).

In the sourthern region, a majority of the population practices traditional indigenous beliefs, although some practice Christianity, partly a result of Christian missionary efforts and partly a holdover from earlier Christian Nubian civilizations. The south also contains many tribal groups and many more languages are used than in the north.

On January 1, 1956, Sudan was formally declared independent. In a special ceremony held at the People's Palace, the British and Egyptian flags were brought down and the new Sudanese flag was raised in their place.

Historically, the North of Sudan had closer ties with Egypt and was predominantly Arab and Muslim while the South was predominantly black, with a mixture of Christianity and Animism. These divisions had been further emphasized by the British policy of ruling the North and South under separate administrations. However, civil war, generally between North and South, lasted from this time to 1972. A second civil ignited in 1983 when the 1972 agreements were abrograted. The Darfur region of western Sudan came into conflict with the government, adding to the existing north-south fighting. Severe famines and genocides of millions of Christians, Animists, and black Muslims followed. Since 2003, on-again and off-again peace talks have been interrupted by assassinations and continued genocide by government-sponsored militias. (airports)
