CAIRO - EgyptAir said on Sunday it would resume flights to Libya next week, seven months after the airline suspended operations to its Arab neighbor following the outbreak of an uprising in February that toppled Muammar Gaddafi.

Hussein Massoud, chairman of the EgyptAir holding company, said the first flight would fly on Sunday, Oct. 2, to Libya's second city, Benghazi, where the airline had operated one flight a day from Cairo before the uprising.

"We have decided to become the first airline to resume flights to Libya and quickly, to serve passengers and the expected development between the two countries," Massoud said, adding that work was under way to resume flights to the Libyan capital Tripoli.
