Sudan Airways was founded in February 1946 as a subsidiary of Sudan Railways System.  Technical and operational assistance was contracted to British Company Airwork.  Africa's second oldest scheduled airline flew its first domestic route in 1947 using a fleet of four de Havilland Doves.  In November 1954, Sudan Air flew DC-3s to Cairo.  On the 8th of June 1959, a scheduled service was opened to Athens, Rome and London via Cairo flying the company's new Vickers Viscounts.  The airline set precedence in January 1962 when it became the first African carrier to fly the the Fokker-27. On November 13th of the same year, Sudan Air took delivery of its first Comet.  A giant leap for the airline and its routes map was taken in the mid seventies with the purchase and delivery of the Boeing 707 and Boeing 737-200.  In 1992 the airline modernized its fleet with the goal "glass cockpits" in mind.   Boeing 707's were replaced by Airbus A300, A310 and A320.  The A300 andA310 being the first and only wide bodied aircraft operated by the company;  although L1011's were operated in the late eighties by Royal Jordanian on behalf of Sudan Air.  The F-27 were already replaced in 1990 by the newer F-50.
Sudan Airways, like many other institutions, suffered and still is suffering from the civil war. Several Aircraft were shot down by rebel SAMs. At the time of this writing, "Assudaniah" as it is known in Arabic does not fly to the besieged cities of the south.  Recently, Sudan Airways was also banned from landing in many of its European destinations because of the US backed UN economic embargo.  The financial situation is also suspected for the recent sale of the two Fokker-50s in August 1998.
