Emirates’ three-weekly flights to Tripoli, served by a Boeing 777-200ER in a 3-class configuration, will make a quick stop in Malta every Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Under the new schedule, Emirates’ flight EK745 will leave Dubai at 0930hrs arriving in Malta at 1325hrs. The service will depart Malta 1445hrs arriving in Tripoli at 1555hrs. The return flight will leave Tripoli International Airport at 1725hrs and will land in Dubai at 0100 hrs.
In June 2012, Emirates underlined its commitment to Libya with the reopening of its Tripoli town office enabling customers in Tripoli to book travel on Emirates services outside of Libya including flights commencing from Tunis. The one-stop travel hub has been designed to make business and leisure travel easier and more convenient, with ticketing and reservation counters for general enquiries and dedicated counters for premium passengers, Emirates Holidays customers and travel agents.
Tripoli has been part of Emirates’ route network since March 2001, when services were launched with 4 flights a week.
Over the next six months, Emirates will launch a further four destinations: Haneda on 3 June, Stockholm on 4 September, Clark on 1 October, and Milan-New York on 1 October 2013.
