"Today we facilitated a flight with the International Organization for Migration for the voluntary departure of 91 migrants," said Lieutenant Colonel Hussein Amin al-Terki, responsible for returns of irregular migrants through Misrata airport.
The flight, only the second since such trips were suspended two years ago, included 60 children, 25 women and six men, he told AFP.
The IOM late last month flew 127 Gambians back to their home country in the first flight since the suspension ended.
Libya plunged into a decade of violence following the fall and killing of dictator Moamer Kadhafi in a 2011 uprising, and the resulting lawlessness led to a surge in sub-Saharan African migrants using its shores for desperate bids to reach Europe.
Many are intercepted en route by the Libyan coastguard, backed by European states, and returned to Libyan detention centers.
