Emirates resumes flights to Tripoli
Dubai, September 3, 2013
Dubai-based Emirates airline has resumed passenger flights to Tripoli, the capital of Libya.
The airline will fly three times a week on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday, with a stop at Malta, said a statement.
“We are now connecting Tripoli not only to Dubai, but also to our worldwide network of more than 130 destinations. Solid early bookings have demonstrated the demand, opening up new markets for passengers to and from Libya,” said Adil Al Ghaith, vice president-Commercial Operations Northern and Western Africa.
“Libya is showing healthy economic growth and the re-launch of our flights to Tripoli will help to support business, international trade and from Tripoli to the rest of world.”
The resumption of passenger flights will also enable Emirates SkyCargo to better serve Libyan cargo customers by offering a total weekly capacity of over 100 tonnes and more frequent connections with their supplier markets, said the statement. - TradeArabia News Service
