Turkish Airlines suspends Misrata cargo flights

The suspension of the link was described as temporary but there are no indications for when the service will resume.  

Turkish Airlines has severed its last link with Libya Dawn’s two airports at Misrata and Tripoli’s Mitiga.

It has now cut its cargo service just a week after stopping its twice-daily Istanbul passenger flights. The state-owned Turkish national carrier had, along with three other cargo airlines, continued to serve Libya after August’s violent division. 

A source within the airline’s Istanbul cargo department confirmed social media reports that the airline would no longer be accepting cargo charters to Misrata. 

The suspension of the link was described as temporary but there are no indications for when the service will resume.
