BD: LHR-TFS & -TFN. LN: LHR-Bengazi.

Sat Jul 26, 2003 6:11 am

Since when has BD been serving TFS and TFN from LHR on scheduled flights and for how long has LN been serving Bengazi from LHR?

Hi Pe@rson

I don't think they have. BMI have announced that they will start serving TFS/TFN form Nov (there's another thread about it somewhere) and as far as I know LN only serve Tripoli from LHR (with a leased A320) although they may have applied for a Benghazi licence.

Cheers

Oh yes! According to BAA.com, BD will start its non-stop LHR-TFN service (twice weekly with 321) on Nov 10 until Mar 26. Its TFS service, also non-stop, will operate five-times weekly also using the A321.

Also according to BAA.com, LN operates once-weekly, non-stop flight to BEN from LHR. It doesn't continue onto TIP.

The A300 is TS-IAX. It's a shame BAA.com wasn't absolutely accurate, but then nothing's perfect.  Smile

Thanks for the Libyan info. The last I heard they were using a Nouvelair A320.
