Libya: Libyan Arab Airlines resume flights from Labreg, Tobruk airports

Tripoli, Libya (PANA) – The Libyan state-owned airline, Libyan Arab Airlines, Thursday resumed flights from Labreg and Tobruk airports in the east of the country, as the military tightened security measures at those airports, PANA reported here, quoting the airline's sources.

The sources said there would be only one flight per day to the Labreg airport, except on Mondays and Tuesdays, adding that flights to Tobruk will take every Tuesday.

The airline's director of information, Mohamed Boussaada, said that the difficulties which necessitated the closure of the airports have been resolved. They include insecurity and the disruption of the work in the baggage-handling department.

Meanwhile, another state-owned airline, Afriqiyah Airways, had announced the suspension of operations from Labreg airport because of the deterioration of the security situation and a series of attacks on its staff, including a pilot who was attacked by Tunisia-bound passengers.
