National Salvation Government PM: Flights from Tripoli International Airport to take off by mid-March

The Prime Minister of the National Salvation Government (NSG), a rival government to the UN-brokered Government of National Accord, Khalifa Al-Ghweil, inaugurated Thursday evening the reopening of the Tripoli International Airport, saying flights will start taking off by March 15-20.

The ceremony of the reopening was held in the airport with a heavy media presence and was coupled with attendants from political and military figures supporting the NSG.

The airport was partially destroyed by the war in Tripoli between Zintan brigades and Libyan Dawn (Fajr Libya) brigades in July 2014.

In his speech at the inauguration, Al-Ghweil said the reopening and reconstruction of the VIP lounge and other parts of the airport have been done in a record time and by local companies and workers.

Meanwhile, flights to and from Tripoli are being operated from Mitiga airport since 2014. The airport is under the control of the GNA.
