The Middle East’s biggest airline plans to restart flights to the Libyan capital, joining a growing number of carriers returning to Tripoli since the end of the country’s civil war.

Dubai-based airline Emirates said Monday it would resume Tripoli flights four times a week starting October 29. It stopped flying to Libya in February 2011 because of violence there during the uprising that eventually deposed Moammar Gadhafi.

Another UAE carrier, Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways, began flying to Tripoli earlier this year. Alitalia and British Airways are among the other carriers that have resumed Tripoli flights.
