Khartoum International Airport (IATA: KRT, ICAO: HSSS) is an airport in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan.

It will be replaced with a new airport 40 kilometers south of the centre of Khartoum by 2012. This is planned to have two 4000 metre runways, a passenger terminal of 86,000 square metres and a 300-room international hotel.

Accidents and incidents

  • On 27 August 1952, Vickers Viscount G-AHRF operated by the Ministry of Supply was damaged beyond economic repair when its starboard undercarriage collapsed on landing.
  • On 19 July 1983, Douglas C-47A N480F of Chevron Oil crashed shortly after take-off from Khartoum International Airport on a non-scheduled passenger flight. Both engines had failed, probably due to contaminated fuel. All 27 people on board survived.
  • On March 30, 2007, a hijacked airliner landed at Khartoum International. Sources vary on what happened next, but the man was ultimately detained with no injuries caused to anyone. See 2007 Sudan Airways hijacking.
  • Sudan Airways Flight 109: On June 10, 2008, an aircraft operating from Amman, Jordan, landed and, while taxiing to the terminal, the right engine caught fire and the fire spread rapidly. Preliminary reports stated that around 100 of the 200 passengers had been killed but this was revised to 28 dead, 123 survivors and 53 unaccounted for.
  • On June 30, 2008, an Ilyushin Il-76 exploded into a fireball on take-off. All 4 crew were killed.
