Undersecretary of the Ministry of Transport, Hisham Abushkiwat has assured travelers that flights will continue to operate normally.

"No one could impose an air embargo over Tripoli," Abushkiwat said in a press statement on Sunday, in reference to Haftar's forces.

This came in response to statements made by spokesman for Haftar, Ahmed Al-Mismari, who announced the imposition of an air embargo extending from the Maya area west of Tripoli to Garabulli district eastward, and from the city of Tarhouna to Gharyan, south of Tripoli.
