UAE Bans Sudanese Airline

The UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) banned a Sudanese operator of a Boeing 707 cargo plane from UAE plane, following its crash in Sharjah, which killed all six crew members.  The plane was transporting air conditioning units, computers, auto parts, and exploded on impact.

GCAA said that Sharjah Airport operations and infrastructure were investigated and do not appear to have contributed to the crash.  Aviation experts say the Sudanese airfleet is outdated and its government claims spare parts for its US made aircraft are not available because of economic sanctions imposed by Washington.  The US has place Khartoum on a blacklist of countries that support terrorisms but says this does not prevent delivery of spare parts if they are requested.
