According to breakingnewstravel, Emirates will resume passenger flights to Tripoli from 1 September. The airline will offer three flights a week, served by a Boeing 777-200ER in a three-class configuration, and will make a quick stop in Malta every Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday.
Emirates Senior Vice-President Commercial Operations for Africa Luc Grillet said it’s the right time to re-launch flights to Libya to help “support business, international trade and passenger travel to and from Tripoli, as well as strengthen the country’s overall infrastructure.” He added that the resumed service will be of particular benefit to passengers with connections to the Indian sub-continent, the Far East and West Asia points.
Under the new schedule, Emirates’ flight EK745 will leave Dubai at 09h30 and arrive in Malta at 13h25. The service will depart Malta at 14h45 and arrive in Tripoli at 15h55. The return flight will leave Tripoli International Airport at 17h25 and land in Dubai at 01h00. Tripoli will be one of the 23 destinations to which Emirates currently flies in Africa, after launching a daily service to Algiers earlier this year.
