The Address | Benghazi – Libya
BENGHAZI – Libyan Airlines (LA) announced on Sunday that all flights from and to Benina International Airport in Benghazi were suspended as a result of the only plane’s breakdown and maintenance.
Hundreds of Benghazi passengers are currently stranded at Benina airport since last night waiting for the Libyan Airlines to provide a plane as soon as possible, according to the management of Benina International Airport.
“The administration in Tripoli failed to respond with a temporary plane to carry out flights and serve the citizens until the plane returns from maintenance.” LA media office said today.
The media office confirmed that Libyan Airlines management in Tripoli has four planes parked in Tripoli, while it operates one plane in Benghazi, despite the increasing demand for flights by citizens in Benghazi.
It is noteworthy that a year after the resumption of flights, the Benina International Airport in Benghazi made a record in the number of passengers using it with a 100 percent seat occupancy on all destinations for all airlines.
On the other hand, flights from and to Mitiga International Airport were repeatedly suspended by the Civil Aviation Authority in the last three months due to continued clashes between rival militias in and around Tripoli.
