Temporary suspension of flights to and from Tripoli

Due to several incidents at the international airport Tripoli since March 21, 2014, which lead to the temporary closure of the airport, Austrian Airlines does not offer flights from or to Tripoli at the moment. We constantly evaluate the state of facts, but at the moment no final decision can be made. Therefore, we cannot reinstate flights from or to Tripoli yet. We are in close contact with responsible authorities and we will reevaluate the suspension based on conclusive findings.
We regret any inconvenience this may cause.
