Middle Eastern carrier Etihad Airways is suspending flights to Tripoli, the capital of Libya, over safety concerns.
Etihad has been operating thrice-weekly passenger services to the city, as well as twice-weekly cargo flights.
But chief operations officer Richard Hill says the airline is "temporarily" suspending the connection.
"As the safety and security of our guests, employees and assets remains our number one priority, our assessment of the existing situation at Tripoli airport does not provide the level of assurance we require to ensure safe operation of our flights," he says.
Hill has not disclosed specific details of the airline's concerns.
But he states: "Once we are satisfied that the arrangements at Tripoli airport meet our requirements, we will resume services."
