The best air ticket to Sudan

The best air ticket that I booked to Sudan was in Saudi Arabia with Qatar Airways. When comparing air tickets, economy class tickets with Qatar Airways are the cheapest tickets available to Sudan. I had such a great time in Sudan. The weather and food was great. I also booked a ticket for a group tour and the excursion was a lot of fun. I will be booking a ticket to Sudan next year and hope that I can explore the country more.

Nice trip in Sudan with a cheap direct ticket

My visit to Sudan was enjoyable an I booked tickets to see some attractions once there. I travelled to Omdurman and Arkawit while in Sudan. Such great sights! I will return to Sudan and hope to book my air ticket soon.
