Libya: Flights from two alternative airports

The Tripoli International Airport was still closed Saturday following clashes between rival militias. However, flights have been operated from two smaller airports, which were crowded by Libyans and expatriates stranded in the country for several days.

Local companies have resumed flights from Mitiga airport in Tripoli, usually used by the military and oil companies, and that of Misrata, 200 km east of the capital.

From Mitiga, flights are operated to Egypt, Jordan and Tunisia.
The Tripoli International Airport has been closed since the fighting began last Sunday. The terminal and twenty aircraft were damaged by fire.
