The new Libyan government has announced a flight to the north pole together with representatives of NATO member states that took part in the 2011 military campaign. The flight aims at an increase of the feeling for togetherness within the Libyan society and a positive reception in the world public.
The Sysselmannen has, however, denied permission for a fuel stop in Longyearbyen. The organizers of the flight said they were disappointed and would try to take the issue up to a political level.
