Egypt’s national airline says it will resume flights to the Libyan capital Tripoli next week, marking a step toward normalcy after Libya’s eight-month civil war.
Egypt Air said in a statement on Thursday evening that it will run daily flights from Cairo to Tripoli starting Nov. 17. It began running four flights per week to the eastern city of Benghazi earlier this month.
Turkish Airlines and Italian carrier Alitalia have already resumed flights.
