Emirates will restart passenger flights to Tripoli from 1 September 2013.
The route will restart with three-weekly flights to Tripoli, served by a Boeing 777-200ER in a three-class configuration, with a stop in Malta every Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday.
“The re-introduction of our flights to Tripoli is a further boost to north Africa, coming after the launch of Emirates’ daily service to Algiers from 1 March 2013,” said Jean Luc Grillet, Emirates senior vice president commercial operations for Africa. “We have been closely monitoring the situation in Libya and feel that the time is right to re-launch our services, which will help to support business, international trade and passenger travel.”
Tripoli has been part of Emirates’ route network since March 2001, when services were launched with four flights a week.
