After a six month hiatus due to heavy fighting, commercial flights from Libya to Europe have recommenced.
Libyan carrier Afriqiyah scheduled a service that flew from Tripoli’s Matiga airport to Düsseldorf and the airline plans to fly to Rome shortly.
Turkish Airlines had tried to resume operations last year, but an escalation in fighting centred on the airport forced a withdrawal.
There is currently a flight ban by the European Union, but Libyan carriers can contract operating planes registered in the EU.
