Airlines resume flights between Libya’s east, west
Airspace closed early March amid political differences

In a statement, the Mitiga airport said flights were resumed to the airports of Tobruk, Labraq and Baninah in eastern Libya.
The Misurata airport also announced the resumption of flights to Benghazi airport.
