Etihad Airways announced today that it will begin flying to Tripoli on 17 January. The three return flights a week will be operated by an Airbus A320 with 162 Coral Economy seats.
The flights will depart from Abu Dhabi at 8 am. on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays with the return service leaving Tripoli at 4.15 pm.
The Libyan capital becomes the fifth city in North Africa to which the airline flies and the 73rd passenger destination in Etihad’s worldwide network.
The Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Airways, Mr James Hogan, said the schedule would provide convenient timings for Abu Dhabi and UAE-based passengers and allow fast and seamless connections across Etihad’s broader GCC network.
Initially the flights will operate via Alexandria in Egypt but Etihad Airways will move to non-stop services as soon as the infrastructure in Tripoli can support them.
