Qatar Airways reintroduced scheduled services between Doha and Tripoli in February 2012 after temporarily suspending operations to the city due to the unstable political situation in Libya.

Initially, the route was served three-times-a-week, via Alexandria, and due to popular demand increased to daily services in August last year. Qatar Airways also serves Libya’s second largest city Benghazi with four flights each week directly from Doha.
