Buccino visited, Thursday, the airport which reconstruction has been awarded to the consortium of Italian companies, "Aeneas ", according to Italian embassy tweet on Twitter.
The Italian ambassador inspected the construction, saying that the airport, once completed, will be able to serve more than 6.5 million passengers annually, and it will act as a bridge for Libya to the Mediterranean and the world.
