Emirates airline will launch its inaugural flight to Libya on March 25th, the Gulf News reported, quoting Emirates officials.
The Dubai carrier will run three weekly non-direct flights to Tripoli through Malta on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and direct return flights to Dubai on the same days, the officials added.
According to the daily, the Emirates' new service is part of the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed between Dubai and Libyan civil aviation authorities in March 1999, allowing both to run unlimited flights and grant them open rights for transportation of passengers, cargo and mail courier.
Under the MoU, both civil aviation authorities are also allowed to exchange information, expertise in aircraft and aerial control, maintenance and training. It also recommended the signing of an avoidance of dual-taxation pact between the two countries – Albawaba.com
