Benghazi, 15 June 2013:
Benghazi’s Benina Airport is closed because of the clashes in the city, in particular on the . . .[restrict]Airport Road. All flights are affected.
The closure was confirmed by Captain Hussain Fitouri, head of the Libyan Pilot’s Union. It is not known how long it will last.
“We were told our flight had been cancelled because no pilots had turned up”, one frustrated Benghazi passenger told the Libya Herald.
There were large crowds of people waiting, he said, in the hope that flights would restart shortly. [/restrict]
