With the lifting of a ban on U.S. travel to Libya, several
companies have already announced new trips to the country.
Universal Travel Systems, of Santa Monica, Calif., has added an
eight-day Libyan Adventure package due to start at the end of
April, and Travcoa, of Newport Beach, Calif., has added a 10-day
Classical Libya trip scheduled for May.
Travel Dynamics, the educationally focused operator, is planning
a series of small ship cruises to the destination in October, and
Clipper Cruise Line plans to add a stop in Tripoli, Libya’s
capital, to its 15-day Mediterranean sailing in 2005.
Despite the lifting of the ban, Libya remains on the U.S.
government’s State Sponsors of Terrorism List, and a State
Department warning urges U.S. citizens visiting the country to
“maintain a high level of vigilance and to take appropriate steps
to increase their security awareness.”
