Qatar Airways Upgrades Tripoli Route

Qatar Airways is to increase capacity on its route to Tripoli from this weekend.

From Saturday 1st June, scheduled services to Tripoli will be de-linked from the Egyptian city of Alexandria, offering additional seats to both cities.

Akbar Al Baker, CEO of Qatar Airways, said:

We are delighted to resume non-stop flights from June 1 ... Today’s announcement is a significant step by Qatar Airways as we show our continued confidence in North Africa.

"This means more capacity and improved travel times to and from Tripoli."

Qatar Airways reintroduced scheduled services between Doha and Tripoli in February 2012 after temporarily suspending operations to the city due to the unstable political situation in Libya.

Initially, the route was served three-times-a-week, via Alexandria, and due to popular demand increased to daily services in August last year.

Qatar Airways also serves Libya’s second largest city Benghazi with four flights each week directly from Doha.
