With the departure of the first flight from Dubai International airport this week, Emirates has re-established a key route offering Libyan travellers access to its global network that spans six continents.
Emirates now serves Tripoli three times a week with a quick stop in Malta, utilizing a Boeing 777-200ER which provides First Class, Business Class and Economy Class travel. EK745 leaves Dubai every Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday at 0930hrs arriving in Malta at 1325hrs. The service departs Malta at 1455hrs arriving in Tripoli at 1555hrs. The return flight leaves Tripoli International Airport at 1725hrs and lands in Dubai at 0100hrs the next day.
Supporting trade between Tripoli and the rest of the world, Emirates SkyCargo introduced a freighter service to the city in May 2012, helping import a variety of goods such as electronics from the Far East to drilling equipment from the US. The resumption of passenger flights also enables Emirates SkyCargo to better serve Libyan cargo customers by offering a total weekly capacity of over 100 tonnes and more frequent connections with their supplier markets.
Emirates is operating four scheduled flights weekly from Malta to Dubai via Larnaka, Cyprus, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. While on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, Emirates operates direct flights from Dubai to Malta and return flights fly via Tripoli.
