Lufthansa halts Tripoli flights on security grounds
Frankfurt, February 5, 2013
Germany's Lufthansa and unit Austrian Airlines have halted flights to Tripoli due to the situation on the ground in Libya, a spokeswoman said on Tuesday.
"We have taken the decision given the developments in Tripoli and the tense situation in the region," the spokeswoman said.
The airline, which flew three times a week to Tripoli, had restarted flights to the Libyan capital in February 2012 after rebels in 2011 ousted former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. – Reuters
