ISTANBUL (Turkey), January 6 (SeeNews) – Turkish Airlines, the last remaining foreign carrier offering flights to Libya, has announced the suspension of its flights to the city of Misrata in the troubled country, reported local media on Tuesday.

Turkish Airlines suspends flights to Libya's Misrata - media

Turkish Airlines suspended flights to Libya in July after fighting broke out in the capital between rival militias at the main international airport of Tripoli, the capital city. Local companies then began operating from Tripoli's Mitiga airport and Turkish Airlines resumed a Misrata service.

The Turkish carrier said it had suspended flights to Misrata, its only remaining destination in the country, after it had earlier cancelled flights to Tripoli, Benghazi and the inland desert city of Sebha, as reported by Hurriyet.
      
"We have suspended our Misrata flights until further notice, due to operational issues," a company spokesman said. "Turkish Airlines is not operating any scheduled flights to Libya at the moment," the spokesman added.
