08 April, 19:47

    (ANSAmed) - TRIPOLI, APRIL 8 - Italian carrier Alitalia has prolonged a suspension of flights to and from Tripoli until April 15 included, sources told ANSA on Tuesday.

    The same decision was taken by British Airways which is suspending all flights till April 17 included. Another two companies, Austrian Airlines and Germany's Lufthansa, have instead decided to suspend flights indefinitely for security reasons. The two companies however have said they are in contact with authorities and could re-consider the decision.

    Three weeks ago, two blasts damaged the main runway of the capital's international airport. A few sources said two missiles caused the damage while others blamed two bombs. It is still unclear who was behind the attack.

    Since then, Lufthansa, Austrian, British Airways and Alitalia have suspended all connections to the capital.

    The carriers were among the very few European companies flying to the North African country. Air Malta is continuing to operate flights to Tripoli. (ANSAmed)
