Tripoli, 28 March 2013:
Germany’s Lufthansa Airlines will be flying daily again between Tripoli and Frankfurt as of Sunday 31 March. For the past month, the airline has been operating just three flights a week, on Sunday, Monday and Thursday.
Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines, a subsidiary of Deutsche Lufthansa, suspended flights to Tripoli on 5 February amid concerns about security in the run-up to the 17 February Revolution anniversary.
Austrian are now flying five times a week between Tripoli and Vienna.
Lufthansa says that passengers from Tripoli can easily connect in Frankfurt with flights to 218 destinations in 82 countries. The Frankfurt hub is reported to be particularly popular with passengers travelling between Libya and North America.
“With the strength of Lufthansa’s network, we are in a position to serve more passengers with our daily services complemented by our products onboard and on ground. Providing daily flights means more flexibility and choices for our customers,” said Antonio Tassone, Lufthansa’s General Manager in Libya.
