On 25 November 2019, the U.S. Embassy in Tunis, Tunisia, issued a Security Alert for Libya, which reads in part as follows:

“Location: Libya

“Event: Continued fighting around Tripoli and the increased involvement of foreign forces and mercenaries has heightened the risk to civil aviation in Libyan airspace. On October 23, 2019, the Federal Aviation Administration prohibited U.S. civil flight operations at all altitudes in the territory and airspace of Libya, noting an unacceptable risk to civil aviation operations.

“Tripoli’s Mitiga Airport remains closed, and significant limitations on commercial air travel transiting to or through Libyan airspace remain in place as a result of the ongoing civil conflict.”
