TUNISIA GIVES CONDITIONS TO OPEN AIR SPACE FOR LIBYAN PLANES

TUNIS, April 18 — Tunisia will open its air space to Libyan planes as soon as the security at Libyan airports is tightened, Tunisian Minister of Transport Mahmoudi Ben Romdhane said.

In this regard, the Minister said a delegation comprising representatives of the Tunisian Ministries of Transport, Foreign Affairs and Interior will visit all the Libyan airports to make sure their security and safety are tightened.

Speaking at a press conference here, he said once the delegation is convinced about the security of the Libyan airports, the severed air link will be restored.

The Tunisian authorities had on March 24 closed the Tunisian air space to Libyan planes because of the deterioration of the security situation in Libya.
