Tripoli International (TIP) Airport
Tripoli International TIP Airport Overview
In August 2015 it was reported that the Government announced that heavily destroyed Airport is to be reconstructed and Terminal renovations are to be undertaken - and that the Airport is to be renamed 'Idris International Airport' (King Idris was removed by Gaddafi in 1969). A foundation stone for the 'new' airport hasleid in March 2016.
- A Turkish company started to rebuild TIA - including the passenger lounge, runway, control tower, and parking facility. The new 3-level terminal would house a passenger lounge and have a capacity of 5 million passengers annually. Also, a new runway would accommodate up to 12 planes.
- By October 2016, the Libya Herald announced that Italian companies visited the Airport's remains to offer a reconstruction plan.
