    Air Malta to send technical delegation to Libya next week

    Air Malta is making arrangements to send a technical delegation to Tripoli and Benghazi next week to assess the situation at these airports.
    The delegation will be meeting the highest authorities of these airports and carrying out audits to assert their operational conditions.
    The Air Malta team will include representatives from the airline's commercial, security, ground services, flight operations and engineering sections.
    The visit follows a meeting held between Air Malta's chief executive Peter Davies and the Libyan Provisional Government Transport Minister Anwar El Feitori in Malta during the signing of the agreement between Libyan and NATO officials on the establishment of air corridors to be used for civil aircraft.
    Air Malta is closely working with the Maltese government and Libyan officials to facilitate travel arrangements and restart flights as soon as possible.
    Since it is likely that its first flights will be to Benghazi, Air Malta said it was important to have the visa issuance process from Benghazi facilitated.
    This is critical for the feasibility of this route, the airline said.

    U.S., allies taking urgent action on Libya missiles

    BRUSSELS (Reuters) – The United States and its EU and NATO allies are taking urgent steps to prevent Libya shoulder-fired missiles in Libya falling into the hands of militant groups and threatening civil aviation, a senior U.S. official said on Friday.
    Germany's Der Spiegel magazine reported last week that NATO's top officer, Admiral Giampaolo Di Paola, told German lawmakers in a confidential briefing that NATO had lost track of 10,000 such missiles that had been in the hands of Muammar Gaddafi's forces.
    Andrew Shapiro, the U.S. assistant secretary of state for political-military affairs, said he had no estimate of how many were missing but said Libya was thought to have had about 20,000 when the war against Gaddafi began in February.
    He said thousands were thought to have been destroyed during the NATO bombing campaign in behalf of anti-Gaddafi rebels, but there was an urgent need to account for the rest.

    Etihad to launch flights to Tripoli

    Etihad to launch flights to Tripoli

    Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, today announced it would soon begin flights to Tripoli. The Libyan capital will become the fifth North African destination for the carrier. The Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Airways, Mr James Hogan, said the airline was planning three flights a week to Tripoli. “As soon as the NATO no-fly zone is lifted, the airport is declared safe and all appropriate infra-structure is in place we will be able to begin services,” he said.

    The return flights, to be operated by an Airbus A330-200 with 22 Peal Business Class and 240 Coral Economy seats, should be on sale within weeks.
    Mr Hogan said the proposed schedule would allow maximum connectivity over Abu Dhabi for flights from North and South Asia and the Indian Subcontinent as well as serving strong point to point traffic.

    Turkish Airlines expands route to Libya

    Turkish Airlines has announced direct flights to Misrata, Libya’s third-largest city. The first flight to Misrata took off yesterday, and direct flights to Misrata will regularly operate every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, beginning the first week of 2012, Turkish Airline said. Cargo flights to Misrata are also scheduled to start soon. The airline already flies to the Libyan cities of Tripoli and Benghazi on a regular basis, and the increase in the number of flights to Libya could be seen as a way for Turkey to try and keep influence over the Libyans. Turkish Airline’s CEO, Temel Kotil has said the company plans to add 18 more planes to its fleet in 2012. The airline will begin flights to 10-14 new destinations next year. Kotil stressed that it was important to achieve their 2011 targets especially in light of the Japan tsunami, the eurozone economic crisis, regime changes in North Africa and the Middle East, and rising foreign exchange and oil prices.

    More flights to Tripoli

    Air Malta will be adding more flights to Tripoli from January 3.
    It will be operating to and from the Libyan capital every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
    Chief commercial officer Philip Saunders said the decision was taken following the increase in demand since the airline resumed scheduled air services to Libya on November 28.
    The additional frequency means some 1,000 additional passengers will be travelling to and from Tripoli every month.
