ANALYSIS: The operational status of the international airport in Tripoli, Libya was assessed from an analysis of satellite imagery collected on 11 April and 25 March 2011. Although there are no visible damages to airport building facilities and no obstructions apparent along the runways, several large aircraft have been parked along the majority of taxiways connecting Runways 09/27 and 18/36 to the terminal buildings and other airport facilities. These aircraft are marked on the map and four focus insets are provided to illustrate their positioning. This was produced by UNITAR/UNOSAT in support of international humanitarian assistance to the people of Libya. The map is created to respond to the needs of UN agencies and their partners. It is intended to provide objective geographic information and has been designed for easy printing and readability for A4 and A3 prints. This is an initial assessment and has not yet been independently verified on the ground. Please send feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
