The Advisory Scientific Committee, set up to combat the Coronavirus pandemic, held discussions with the Ministry of Transport on Wednesday to agree on procedures for the return of Libyan stranded citizens who have not yet been evacuated.

The two sides discussed the mechanisms to begin opening the major airports and also the training for staff to deal with both arrivals and departures of travelers in these atypical circumstances.

The Undersecretary of the Ministry, Hisham Abu Shkiwat, expected flights from Mitiga International Airport to resume within weeks.
