Jat to Tripoli and Malta soonJat Airways will be resuming flights to the Libyan capital Tripoli in March 2012, the first time since services were disrupted earlier in the spring due to a bombing campaign and rebellion uprising. Flights are scheduled to operate twice per week, every Monday and Thursday with a Boeing 737-300 via Malta. The return flight from Tripoli continues on directly to Belgrade, thus forming a triangle service. As a result, Malta will also stage a comeback in Jat’s 2012 summer timetable. The route was suspended simultaneously with the Tripoli flights. Tickets are already on sale. Flights commence on March 26.
Jat Airways was the last European airline togeather with Air Malta to suspend flights to Tripoli on March 17, when it maintained a one weekly service between the Serbian, Maltese and Libyan capitals. The Serbian carrier operated a total of five evacuation flights to Libya before a United Nations no fly zone was implemented across the country.
