London, 27 March 2016:
Tripoli and Misrata airspaces were reopened to flights late Sunday afternoon after they had been closed . . .[restrict]from 8 am due to ‘’technical’’ reasons, the Tripoli de facto authorities claimed.
Both major airliners, Libyan and Afriqiya made clear in their statements that they were unaware of the real reasons for the sudden closure.
Sources said that aviation staff were forced to leave their posts at 4 am by militias. Many believe that the action was linked to the anticipated possible arrival of Faiez Serraj and his GNA by plane from Tunis to Mitiga airport. [/restrict]
