British Airways is to resume flights to Libya in May, the airline announced, 15 months after they were suspended as the country descended into bloodshed.

The decision to reinstate three services a week to the capital, Tripoli, followed a "thorough security review" involving the Government and the new Libyan authorities, it said.

BA chief executive Keith Williams said: "We are delighted to be returning to Libya.

"Our flights to Tripoli have provided a vital economic link for many years, and it is good news for everyone that we can now restart operations."

The airline operated daily flights to and from Tripoli before the successful uprising against Muammar Gaddafi's regime and said it would keep the frequency of services under review.
