    Secrets of a ‘super-fixer’ in Libya

    Flanked by two colleagues, a 60-something Englishman quietly worked the lobby of Benghazi’s Tibesti Hotel last week, targeting people likely to be the power brokers in a new Libya.

    Approached by a Reuters reporter, the man declined to give his name or even shake hands, describing himself as “a very private person.”

    EU Lifts Libyan European Airspace Ban

    September 23, 2011
    The European Union has lifted a ban on the use of European airports and European airspace by Libyan aircraft as part of wider moves to end sanctions against the North African country.
    The EU has also ended an asset freeze on Afriqiyah Airways and agreed to release funds held within the EU by 22 Libyan entities including Libyan Arab Airlines.
    The sanctions were lifted following a meeting of world powers in Paris which agreed to free up billions of dollars of frozen assets to help Libya's new rulers rebuild the nation after 42 years of Muammar Gaddafi's rule and six months of civil war.
    The EU had imposed sanctions on a wide range of individuals and entities in Libya this year to isolate Gaddafi, who was ousted from power in Tripoli last month.

    Swiss lift sanctions against Libya oil firms, airline

    GENEVA, Sep 23, 2011 (AFP) - Switzerland said Friday that it has lifted sanctions against two Libyan oil firms -- National Oil Corporation and its affiliated Zueitina Oil Corporation, as well as Afriqiyah Airways.
    The authorities announced the changes in a decree which entered into force Friday.
    The move to ease sanctions came after the UN Security Council last week unanimously passed a resolution to ease economic and military sanctions against Libya and set up a UN mission to help the interim government.

    The Security Council lifted UN asset freezes and other measures against Libyan National Oil Corporation and Zueitina Oil Company, and eased sanctions against the central bank, Libyan Arab Foreign Bank, Libyan Investment Authority and Libyan African Investment Portfolio.
    Bern had said in early September that it wanted to unlock $420 million (294 million euros) in frozen Libyan assets to assist the country's new interim government.

    Libyan jet's roundels changed in poignant ceremony

    A Libyan Air Force Mirage F1 fighter jet had its all-green roundel replaced by the new Libyan colours this morning amid applause at Malta International Airport, where the jet is on static display as part of the Malta Airshow.
    The poignant ceremony was carried out by Libyan Air Force Brigadier General Mohammed Rajab amid applause, victory signs and chants of Allah Hu Akbar. The Libyan ambassador was also present.
    The Mirage was one of a pair which were flown to Malta in February when their pilots refused Gaddafi government orders to bomb civilians near Benghazi. The pilots returned to Libya last week and received a heroes' welcome.
    The jets cannot be returned to Libya yet, because of UN sanctions.

    Libya's main airport to reopen soon - NTC

    Tripoli - Libya's main international airport will reopen within a month and several international carriers have agreed to start flights again, the interim transport minister said on Tuesday.

    Libya's provisional government took over Tripoli International Airport from a group of regional fighters on Monday as part of its efforts to consolidate control over strategic infrastructure.

    Al Italia has agreed to restart flights on November 2, interim minister for transport and communications, Anwar Alfituri, told Reuters.

    He said the ruling National Transitional Council (NTC) had also received requests to restart flights from Air France, Egypt Air, Royal Jordanian, Tunis Air and Austrian Airlines.

    “I would say international flights will start up again within a month,” he said. “I expect that all of them will start by November.”

    Turkish Airlines is the only international carrier to have restarted flights out of Libya since rebel fighters seized Tripoli from Muammar Gaddafi's forces in August.

    Both that airline and some domestic operators have been using a military airport in Tripoli.

    Nato, Libya agreement paves way for limited commercial flights

    A UN-mandated no-fly zone over Libya is still in force but the agreement signed yesterday in Malta hands over the responsibility of certain air corridors to the Libyan authorities and opens the possibility for commercial flights to Libya to start.
    The agreement between Nato and the Libyan civil aviation authorities covers flights from Benghazi to the rest of the world and the internal routes between Benghazi and the capital Tripoli and Misurata.
