Etihad Airways is to start flights to Tripoli
Etihad Airways has announced plans to launch flights to Tripoli.
The national airline of the UAE said that the Libyan capital will become its fourth North African destination.
James Hogan, chief executive officer of Etihad Airways, suggested that it is expected to initially carry holidaymakers, who may have taken out a good
travel insurance policy, thrice a week to Tripoli.
Mr Hogan said: "As soon as the Nato no-fly zone is lifted, the airport is declared safe and all appropriate infrastructure is in place we will be able to begin services."
The new service is expected to make the Libyan capital more accessible to holidaymakers.
