The resumption of Malta -Tripoli flights is possible according to statements for European Commission official to independent Malta website.
The statements of the -unnamed official- on Sunday, pointed out that the returning of air flights between the two countries has been a priority during formal discussions between Libya’s government of National Accord and Malta’s officials.
The European Commission official, however, referred that all Libyan airlines were listed on the EU Air Safety List. “The EU Air Safety List (ASL) – formerly referred to as the ‘EU blacklist’ – is a list of air carriers from non-EU countries which do not fulfil the necessary international safety standards. The carriers on the ASL are banned from operating to, in and from the EU.”
According to the newspaper report, there are several on-going discussions between the two countries regarding the resumption of Malta -Tripoli flights.
It was stated that, last month, Air Malta CCO Paul Sies confirmed that talks were underway on the possibility of Air Malta resuming flights between Malta and Libya. Currently, only Medavia is operating flights between Malta and Tripoli, using a turbo-prop aircraft.
