Tripoli, 3 November 2013:
British Airways has announced that it will be keeping its fourth weekly service between London and Tripoli over the winter season.
The fourth flight was originally introduced to boost the airline’s summer schedule. It has been such a success, the airline said, it has decided to continue the higher frequency service into winter 2013.
“Libya is a very important market for BA and we are very pleased with the strong demand we have seen for our Tripoli route, both inbound and outbound,” said BA’s Commercial Manager for North Africa, Sarah Cain. “The increased frequency also gives more flexibility to the rising number of passengers we see flying into Libya, as interest in the North African markets continues to grow.”
North Africa is one of the markets BA is currently focusing on. As well as daily flights to Algeria and Egypt, and five flights a week to Tunisia, BA has increased its flights to Marrakech, in Morocco, from daily to 10 per week.
