Turkish Airlines is the final foreign airline to suspend flights to Libya, amid mounting security concerns. There are now currently no foreign airlinks to or from the North African country.
A spokesman from the airline commented,
“We stopped flights to Misrata for the past few days. There are some concerns about security at the airport. Until security is restored we don’t plan to start flights.”
The airline suspended its flights to all its Libya destinations, not just Misrata. Flights to Tripoli, the eastern city of Benghazi and the southern city of Sebha have also been suspended. The European Union barred all seven Libyan airlines from flying in EU airspace in December.
