Egyptian Aviation Minister Confirms Direct Libya-Cairo Flights


Mohamed Manar Enabah, Egypt’s Minister of Civil Aviation said that based on the government’s directives to provide support to Libya, flights will now be able to arrive in Cairo, rather than at Alexandria’s Borg Al-Arab airport.

“With the desire of the Libyans, it was agreed to have flights land in Cairo, and a memorandum was signed. There is a training aspect for our brothers on the Libyan side, and there are some agreements on entry and exit points,” he noted.

On Tuesday, Mustafa Madbouly, Egypt’s Prime Minister visited Tripoli, accompanied by eleven government ministers. They held talks with Abdel-Hamid Dbaiba, Prime Minister of the Libyan Government of National Unity (GNU), and several agreements to strengthen bilateral cooperation between the two countries in various fields were signed.

The Libyan Prime Minister confirmed the agreement to restore direct air traffic between Cairo and Libyan airports. He explained that the first direct flight would operate to Cairo airport on Wednesday.
