Etihad is planning to start flights to Tripoli as soon as the military-imposed flight ban is removed.
James Hogan, Etihad’s CEO, said: “As soon as the NATO no-fly zone is lifted, the airport is declared safe and all appropriate infra-structure is in place we will be able to begin services.”
Flights between Etihad’s hub airport in Abu Dhabi and Tripoli will be operated using an A330-200 aircraft, configured with 22 Pearl Business Class seats and 240 Coral Economy seats.
Despite no date being given for the launch of the new route, the airline said it plans to have seats on sale “within weeks”.
