Tripoli, April 5
Air Malta announced today it will add . . .[restrict]a sixth weekly flight between Malta and Tripoli as of Wednesday, April 18, and another weekly flight from Friday, May 4, thus creating a daily service.
“This is good news especially for the Maltese and Libyan communities,” said Peter Davies, Air Malta’s Chief Executive, in a press statement. “Over the last months, since the re-start of the services to Tripoli on November 28, we’ve registered a steady increase in passenger demand. This summer we expect to carry around 30,000 passengers to and from Tripoli.”
He added that the increase in flights between Libya and Malta would help those flying from Tripoli via Malta to other European destinations. The timing of the Malta/Tripoli flights is different each day. That has been organised to facilitate onward connections on other Air Malta flights to Europe.
Air Malta also said in its statement that it was also finalising plans to re-start operations to Benghazi. It said that a formal announcement would be made in due course. [/restrict]
