Emirates will restart passenger flights to Tripoli from 1 September 2013, illustrating Libya’s importance in Emirates’ global network and the airline’s commitment to the country.
Emirates’ three-weekly flights to Tripoli, served by a Boeing 777-200ER in a three-class configuration, will make a quick stop in Malta every Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday.
Under the new schedule, Emirates’ flight EK745 will leave Dubai at 09:30 arriving in Malta at 13:25.
The service will depart Malta 14:45 arriving in Tripoli at 15:55.
The return flight will leave Tripoli International Airport at 17:25 and will land in Dubai at 01:00.
In June 2012, Emirates underlined its commitment to Libya with the reopening of its Tripoli town office enabling customers in Tripoli to book travel on Emirates services outside of Libya including flights commencing from Tunis.
Tripoli has been part of Emirates’ route network since March 2001, when services were launched with four flights a week.
Over the next six months, Emirates will launch a further four destinations: Haneda on 3 June, Stockholm on 4 September, Clark on 1 October, and Milan-New York on 1 October 2013.
