Turkish Airlines returns to Libya after near decade-long break


ISTANBUL: Turkey’s flagship service, Turkish Airlines, has resumed flights to Libya‘s capital, nearly 10 years after they had been suspended over safety considerations within the conflict-torn nation.
The airways’s chief government, Bilal Eksi, attended a ceremony at Mitiga International Airport on Thursday to mark its first flight to Libya since 2015.
“We are delighted to start flights again to Libya, with which we have historical ties,” Eksi mentioned.
“We will continue to bring cultures together in Africa, as in many continents,” he added.
An organization spokesman instructed AFP on Friday that Turkish Airlines will function flights to Tripoli thrice every week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
Turkish Airlines flies to 130 nations and 346 locations.
Libya remains to be struggling to get better from years of conflict that adopted the overthrow and demise of longtime dictator Moamer Kadhafi in 2011.
The nation’s rule is cut up between rival administrations, Tripoli within the west and Benghazi within the east.
Turkey has backed the Tripoli authorities however Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan mentioned in February that Ankara would quickly reopen its consulate in Benghazi.
“We want Libya to resolve its problems through dialogue. We also do not want the current existing division between the east and west to become permanent,” he mentioned again then.
