Royal Jordanian plans to resume flights to Benghazi and Tripoli in Libya in the coming days.

The carrier was forced to suspend its Libya operations in February when civil war broke out in the country.

Royal Jordanian said it will resume flights from Amman to Benghazi and Tripoli "once all the necessary approvals are obtained", and "the readiness of Libyan airports to receive flights is ensured".

The carrier expects Benghazi flights to resume by the end of this week, and Tripoli flights to follow "immediately after".

Flights to the two Libyan cities will initially be operated daily to respond to "strong demand" for travel between Jordan and Libya, said the carrier.

Royal Jordanian previously served Tripoli five times a week and Benghazi twice-weekly.
