Emirates is to resume passenger flights to Tripoli.

The Gulf carrier is expected to operate a Boeing 777-200ER on three-weekly flights to the Libyan capital.

Jean Luc Grillet, Emirates senior vice president of commercial operations for Africa, said: "The reintroduction of our flights to Tripoli is a further boost to north Africa, coming after the launch of Emirates' daily service to Algiers from March 1."

"We have been closely monitoring the situation in Libya and feel that the time is right to relaunch our services, which will help to support business, international trade and passenger travel to and from Tripoli, as well as strengthening the country's overall infrastructure," he added.
