Day flights to resume at Mitiga airport

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TRIPOLI – Day-time flights will resume at Tripoli’s only functioning airport after it was closed to all but night-time traffic earlier this month for “security reasons”, Libyan airport authorities said Monday.

“We have received the order to open air space at Mitiga International Airport 24 hours a day”, the airport said on its official Facebook page.

Mitiga airport had been closed between 0600 GMT and 1500 GMT daily after being hit by an airstrike.

Mitiga airport is on a former military base on the city’s outskirts, and it was forced to close several times because of clashes between militias last year.
