TunisAir is first foreign airliner to resume flights to Libya

TunisAir has resumed flights to Libya, becoming the first foreign airliner to fly the route for seven years in the wake of the United Nations-sponsored peace efforts that led to the election of an interim executive authority and a Government of National Unity in Libya.

TunisAir flights landed on Monday in the Libyan capital Tripoli and in the eastern city of Benghazi, the airliner said, adding that the event was celebrated with hoses firing water arches on arrival.

TunisAir has scheduled three flights a week to Tripoli and two to Benghazi in eastern Libya.

It’s worth noting that TunisAir was the last foreign airliner to suspend flights to Libya in August 2014 because of insecurity.
