Tunis, 3 February 2016:
Reports in Tripoli that Tunisia plans to allow Libya carriers to fly again to Tunis . . .[restrict]Carthage Airport from 8 February are being treated with scepticism in Tunisian aviation circles.
“We’re not aware of any changes at present” said Kamel Sammari, a senior media official at the Tunisian Civil Aviation and Airports Office (OACA).
He added, however, that a team from the OACA had gone to Tripoli last week to discuss the situation.
At the beginning of December all Libya’s airlines were order to switch flights from Tunis Carthage Airport to Sfax as a security measure following the 24 November suicide bombing in Tunis. It was supposed to last until 31 December but was then extended until 31 January. Last week, the Tunisians further extended the decision by another week, saying that the situation would be evaluated at the end of the period.
