Ministry of Transport seeking international accreditation
Al-Hamal stressed that the Ministry of Transport, through its local aviation authorities, including the Airport Authority operating Libyan airports, seeks to adhere to all civil aviation safety standards and apply international quality standards in the management of all services provided within Libyan airports.
