Flights expected to resume at Juba Airport in South Sudan as violence settles down

There are growing indications that air traffic into and out of Juba’s International Airport will resume in the morning, even though key airlines have yet to confirm that.

The South Sudan capital remained calm today after days of factional violence rocked the city which cost, going by some accounts, over a thousand lives.

Airlines promptly suspended operations fearing for the safety of their passengers, crews, and aircraft, leaving thousands of passengers stranded, many trying to escape the fighting only to be stuck at the airport.

According to other sources in Juba, life has begun to normalize for people living there, and even though not all shops and government offices were open today, a full resumption of business is expected by Wednesday morning.
