    Libya AirPort Tripoli (TIP), to reopen nov.2011

    Malta offers to help Libya in air traffic control



    Malta has offered to help Libya in the control of its airspace, and it is hoped that Air Malta will be among the first airlines to resume flights to Tripoli, Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi said this morning.
    Speaking at a PN political activity in Safi, Dr Gonzi reiterated Malta's commitment to help the Libyan people in any way it wished, notably in humanitarian aid, national reconciliation and the building of democratic institutions.
    In his address, Dr Gonzi referred to the 9/11 events and said that today's anniversary reinforced Malta's commitment to work for international peace and stability.
    He also referred to the forthcoming PN Independence celebration and said the PN would show how people should be proud of their country and confident in its people and in the future. The government, he said, had taken tough decisions and paid a price for them, but one only needed to see the situation in other countries, such as Greece, to see how important those decisions were.

    Jordan to resume flights to Libya's Benghazi

    The head of Jordan's flagship airline says Royal Jordanian will resume daily flights to Benghazi, Libya on Thursday, ending a seven-month halt because of Libya's civil war. Hussein Dabbas says flights to the capital Tripoli may resume later this month, once aviation safety is ensured and the airport there can accommodate flights.
    Dabbas said Tuesday that the decision to resume flights to Benghazi was prompted by a "strong demand" for travel there. Benghazi was the command post of Libya's rebels before they took control of Tripoli last month.
    RJ used to operate five weekly flights to Tripoli and two to Benghazi.
    Around 15,000 Jordanian professionals, mainly doctors, engineers and teachers, work in Libya.

    Libya: RAF carries out biggest raid yet on Gaddafi forces

    The strikes come as defence sources suggest that a "final push" is beginning to develop to remove the former Libyan regime troops from their last strongholds.

    SAS troops are now operating close to the front line helping coordinate attacks on the last four areas held by Gaddafi's troops.

    They are also operating alongside MI6 and CIA officers who are attempting to hunt down Col Gaddafi, his sons and other former regime leaders.

    As part of the intensifying attacks for the first time the RAF used a salvo of two dozen Brimstone missiles firing on multiple targets.

    A formation of tanks and armoured vehicles was spotted shelling civilian areas in the regime held town of Sebha, deep in the desert 400 south of Tripoli.

    Post-war Tripoli port back in business, airport ready

    The European Union lifted sanctions on Libyan ports, oil firms and banks on Sept. 2 to try and help the country’s transition from four decades of Gaddafi’s rule.
    Mukhtar al-Akhdar, a military official in charge of the airport, told Reuters damage caused during the uprising has been repaired, the facility was “totally secure” and he hoped it would start operations by Thursday.
    “The airport is ready for airplanes to arrive and depart,” he said. “We had to do some maintenance on the runway due to the shelling of the (Gaddafi) militia, which is now fixed. We cleared the remains of the planes that were destroyed by the militia.”
    Diplomats say Libyan civil airliners and flights carrying official delegations are allowed to fly provided they notify monitors of their flight plans in order to avoid NATO attack.
    The U.N. Security Council resolution imposed in March a no-fly zone for civilian flights over the country as part of international efforts to protect anti-government protesters under attack from Gaddafi loyalists.
    Libyan Arab Airlines and the ports of Tripoli, Al Khoms, Brega, Ras Lanuf, Zawiyah and Zuara were among the 28 Libyan entities, along with oil firms and banks, to be freed from restrictions on Sept. 2.
    The formal lifting of the sanctions came a day after world powers meeting in Paris freed up billions of dollars to help Libya’s new rulers rebuild the nation after 42 years of Gaddafi’s rule and six months of civil war.
