Tripoli, 7 April 2016:
The Malta-based carrier Medavia, which operates a regular service between Malta and Tripoli, resumed flights today after a . . .[restrict]break of almost a week following an shooting incident at Mitiga airport.
The carrier’s plane was not itself shot at last week but a source at Medavia said that operations had been temporarily suspended amid concerns about security at the airport. Satisfied that the incident would not be repeated, Medavia had now restarted its service again, a spokesman said.
The operator flies daily between Malta and Mitiga apart from Fridays and Sundays.
Meanwhile, the Tunisian civil aviation authority has again extended the ban on Libyan carriers using Tunis Carthage International Airport. It will be reassessed at the end of the month. [/restrict]
