EgyptAir will resume flights from Cairo to Benghazi on 5 November following a gap of seven months caused by Libya's civil war, the chairman of the national carrier's holding company said on Thursday.

Chairman Masoud Al Hussein said the airline will provide four services a week -- on Saturday, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday -- from the Egyptian capital to Libya's second city. 
Flights to Tripoli are still some way off, EgyptAir added, citing Libyan Civil Aviation Authority reports that the Libyan capital's main airport is undergoing extensive repairs after being badly damaged during August's fighting.
