From the 1st May British Airways aircraft should be arriving in Libya as the airline plans to resume flights to Tripoli.
British Airways’ chief executive Keith Williams said:
“We are delighted to be returning to Libya. Our flights to Tripoli have provided a vital economic link for many years, and it is good news for everyone that we can now restart operations.”
Since the uprising of early 2011 ended, Libya has been adapting to its new found freedom. With its rich historical locations it could well develop a thriving tourist industry and attract a large number of visitors to its shores. Any airline providing flights to this country will hopefully be of benefit, opening the doors to other carriers to follow suit.
The airline will fly to and from Tripoli three times a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. BA will use the Airbus A320 aircraft from its fleet for this route.
