Libya's international airport resumes commercial flights
Commercial flights have resumed at Tripoli International Airport, which had been closed since the establishment of a no-fly zone, airport officials said Tuesday, dpa reported.
A Turkish Airlines flight from Istanbul was the first to land at the airport on Monday evening.
The Italian airline Alitalia also resumed its flights a few days ago.
The airport had been closed since March after the United Nations established a no-fly zone over Libya and authorized NATO intervention in the country.
During the months of May and July, the airport was severely damaged by forces loyal to slain leader Moamer Gaddafi.
It was captured by anti-Gaddafi forces in August.
