Now that South Sudan is an independent country what will be the first airlines to fly there??

KQ already flies there and some more airlines from Kenya. I don´t know about any other airlines, maybe ET or MS..... I don´t know.

I'm not sure how reliable the information is from our favourite online encyclopedia but it appears that many airlines already fly there.

Yes but they were flying even before south Sudan was a country.

I´m asking about new airlines flying there now that it´s a new country.

Not sure much would change...it's still the same place, just now in a different country. Egyptair's Kharthoum-Juba tag is no longer domestic though. Wonder if they'll try to get 5th freedom rights?

I read on a serbian forum that KQ will be increasing the route to double daily. I know it's not a new airline but sure is a lot of capacity.

I think right now they use the E-170 and adding a second daily will help them to kill the competence, (Jetlink CRJ).

What about Qatar or Turkish??

East Africa safari air seems to operate there according to the flight arrivals and departures screens I can access on an iPad app. That would make it dc9-15 I think.

Maybe once they are stable and begin to tap into the stuff they have in the ground more flights will start appearing.

ET started flying there at the end of 2006 And KQ Last year, so with those two, Juba is well connected to the rest of the world on Day one. I fully expect other carriers to show up soon...

I do not see QR as an airline that is that adventurous with route expansion to unproven cities.
TK is more of an adventurer as witnessed by their flights to Iraq but remember there is a lot of demand to go to Turkey from Iraq.
If anything I see EK flying there before QR & TK

Agreed. At the moment there is much work to be done in South Sudan & the Juba area has only 250,000 people IIRC. Give it some time & I'm sure it will take it's rightful place

EASAX don't fly there any more. Their only scheduled route under their own flight number (B5) is Nairobi to Hargeisa, Somaliland, which returns via Wajir. This operates 3 times per week.

Their only other operations are on behalf of fly540.
