The Undersecretary of the Ministry of Transport, Hisham Abu Shkawat, has expected the resumption of air traffic at Mitiga International Airport within weeks, with full coordination with the Supreme Scientific Committee, formed to combat the Coronavirus pandemic.

Abu Shkawat said, during his recent inspection visit to the airport on Monday, that the Ministry of Transport is working to advance the speed of maintenance work at the airport to complete the project as quickly as possible.

The airport ceased operations after being targeted on dozens of occasions by Haftar’s militias, during the aggression on Tripoli, leaving it completely damaged.
