An Afriqiyah Airways flight taking off from Tripoli's Mitiga airport arrived at Sebha airport on Wednesday.

In a statement to Alwasat, Afriqiyah Airways official Mohamed Abdel Salam, explained that 42 passengers were on board the flight.

He added that each had their temperature taken and given a facemask, in addition to social distancing onboard.

There will be two flights per week to Sebha, one from Tripoli and the other from Benghazi.

It is noteworthy that the Commander-in-Chief of the Libyan Arab Armed Forces, Marshal Khalifa Haftar, agreed to reopen Sebha airport to flights, starting on the 7th of November. This step cames after meetings between military delegations sponsored by the United Nations Support Mission in Libya in which the sides agreed to "work immediately to resume periodic flights to Sebha and Ghadames, with rapid rehabilitation of airfields as needed."
