Air Malta has announced it will be adding its sixth weekly frequency in respect of Tripoli from Wednesday, 18 April, and a further weekly flight from Friday, 4 May, thus commencing a daily service to the Libyan capital.
Commenting on the announcement Air Malta Chief Executive Peter Davies said: “This is good news, especially for the Maltese and Libyan communities. Over the last few months, since the re-start of services to Tripoli last 28 November, we have registered a steady increase in passenger demand. This summer we expect to carry around 30,000 passengers to/from Tripoli.
“The increase in flights between Libya and Malta is another important step in our efforts to continue facilitating travel between the two countries and mainland Europe. Our flights from Tripoli are operating at times that are convenient for onward flight connections with other Air Malta services operating to Europe.”
Air Malta said it is also finalising plans to re-start operations to Benghazi and that a formal announcement to this effect will be made in due course.
