By Libya Herald reporters.
Tunis, 19 June 2015:
Afriqiyah Airways has confirmed that it is to resume Labraq flights, 48 hours after one . . .[restrict]of its pilots was assaulted on the tarmac and another pilot’s car vandalised in what appeared to be related incidents.
The senior source contacted by the Libya Herald gave no reason for the resumption of services. Yesterday the airline was saying that it was “in negotiations” with the airport authorities, presumably over the status of the guard who, it alleged, was involved in the fracas because he was a relative of a passenger having a row with baggage handlers. It said that the guard had not been arrested.
The assault on the pilot and the subsequent attack on another pilots car caused the cancellation first of the Wednesday flight to Tunis and of yesterday’s service to Amman.
