Libya’s state Afriqiyah Airways announced yesterday the restart of its Benghazi – Misurata – Benghazi flights. Flights will commence from next Tuesday 9 March.
On 10 February the first Libyan Airlines flight had commenced from Tripoli’s Mitiga airport to Benghazi’s Benina airport.
The Afriqiyah flight is part of the wider political healing and reunification of the country set in motion by the 23 October ceasefire and 5 February (Geneva) LPDF’s selection of a new unified Libyan government. The news is further evidence of the normalization between western and eastern Libya after a long political split and civil war.
The Libya Herald first appeared on 17 February 2012 – the first anniversary of the Libyan Revolution. Since then, it has become a favourite go-to source on news about Libya, for many in Libya and around the world, regularly attracting millions of hits.
