Quoting bennett123 (Reply 7): According to airfleets, both B747SP were built in 1976, but have not flown since 2007.
Not correct. Both were ferried from DAM to RUH in late 2010 for maintenance prior return to service, but unfortunately that never happened, both are still stored in RUH since. By the way, this topic is about their current network and fleet, which are 6 A320's, 2 ATR72's and one Tu134.

I do not know either but have been monitoring it as I was writing about it on ch-aviation and then got complaints that I was wrong and they have been in FRA several times since then. The last time they have been there on the 11th with YK-AKB: http://www.flightradar24.com/data/airplanes/yk-akb.
However, just checking it again, flights have now disappeared from Amadeus and were previously still showing up as once or twice weekly. So I guess that was the last flight on August 11 to the European Union given they had already dropped all other destinations before.

Quoting Luka (Reply 18): Yeah just like Libyan Arab Airlines after Gaddafi. From a big network they now fly to like 10 cities half of which are in Libya since its pushing daisies over there.
The reintroduction of services was no doubt hampered by the destruction of some aircraft during the heavy fighting at Tripoli Airport - and so as long as the Syrian planes are kept safe it should be less difficult for them to resume normal service as and when stability returns [and lets hope for the sake of the Syrian people that won't be too long] - as long as they can convince other countries that their airport security is up to scratch.
Also don't forget Afriqyah Airways which are currently advertising a number of international destinations from Tripoli - admittedly mainly west and central Africa plus London and Jo'burg.
