Libiya overflights


Do commercial jets presently fly over Libya given the current situation.

If so are these flights safe considering the Colonels irratic behaviour.

Concerned as we will be flying FRA-CPT on LH 576 in December.


It appears the flight usually tracks slightly west of Libya, over Tunisia and Algeria instead.


Flightaware shows LH572 (A388) FRA-JHB at this very moment is directly over Central Libyan airspace.

We do think that your information is more accurate.


We don’t have any actual position data over Libya, so positions on flights like FRA-JNB are estimated and noted as such on the maps.
