The transport planes were returning from training flights in the morning when the collision occurred, a military spokesman said.

The planes, one an Antonov 26 and the other an Antonov 32, suffered severe damage but there were no casualties, the spokesman said.

Civil Aviation spokesman, Abdel-Hafez Abdel-Rahim, said that during the closure international flights were diverted to Port Sudan airport. It later reopened.
