Corinthia Hotel Khartoum Hosts Aviators and Support Team of the Vintage Air Rally in their Crete2Cape Adventure

(Press Release) Realizing visions is something that many aspire for but most seldom see their dreams come true.  Often this is to do with losing heart before even

one embarks on the journey.  - Not the same may be said for a group of aviators who come from all corners of the world. - When they set on the grueling feat to fly in vintage aircraft dating to the early days of the 20th century, they had only one thing in mind that they would reach their destination; a target that have made two be the peak of their adventure.  
The trip that has been planned has to be achieved in stages by flying through 11 countries starting from Crete onto Egypt and then Sudan where the squadron has so far made to stops, first in Karima and now in Khartoum.
In a press conference that was held yesterday hosted at the Corinthia Hotel Khartoum the General Manager, Mr. Nicholas Borg said “At Corinthia we advocate towards contributing to talented people who have the courage and perseverance to succeed.  Furthermore, we have agreed to host these crews as this is something that fosters unity in a global village.  The fact that the mission also has the conservation of the African Eagle made us more want to support the initiative.
The hospitality industry - our industry would not be what it is today if it was not to the advent of air travel and hence we felt the obligation to support and promote the first edition of Vintage Air Rally, this time the Crete to Cape . 
Sudan welcomes and needs such international events as this is what promotes the diversity and beauty of the nation and the country.   At Corinthia we have managed to be pioneers of the tourism industry in several countries and since we are in Sudan we do the same here too.”
The event is being organized by Mr. Sam Rutherford and it is being supported by the Royal Aero Club in the UK and the Federation Aeronautique Internationale. Several journalists of renowned publications and broadcasting stations are accompanying the group amongst which is National Geographic.
The crew and organisers will set on their next leg towards Ethiopia on Tuesday early morning.
