Flights Resume in Southern Libya after Months of Suspension


The Libyan Civil Aviation Authority announced its permission for all airlines to operate flights to all airports in the southern region in the country, starting Friday.

The Commander-in-Chief of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, agreed to reopen Sebha airport, in southwestern Libya, to flights from Saturday.

Last month, the state-owned Afriqiyah Airways announced that it would start operating direct flights from Tripoli’s Mitiga airport to Alexandria and Khartoum.

Hisham Al-Kamoushi, the company’s head of schedules at the commercial planning department, said that the flights to Alexandria will be operated on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. The flights to Khartoum will be on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
