Air Malta moves on Tripoli

AIR Malta will resume the movement of cargo and passengers to Tripoli (Libya) on 28 November.

The flights, which will carry belly freight, will operate three times a week.

“The Tripoli service is positive news to the Maltese and Libyan business communities as it will strengthen the links and facilitate the movement of both passengers and cargo between the two countries,” chief executive officer Peter Davies said. “We intend to increase the number of services to Libya as demand picks up.”

This decision was taken following recommendations by Air Malta’s technical team, which audited airports in Libya over the last three weeks. The team comprised experts in the field of flight operations, safety and security, engineering, ground and airport operations, regulatory affairs and commercial.
