Turks were brought by one Air Libya, two Turkish Airlines (THY) and one private evacuation planes, stated Turkish Prime Ministry press center.
Earlier in the day, it was stated that a THY plane brought 288 Turks from Libya as civil unrest continues to spread across the country.
Hundreds of people have been killed in Libya since protests broke out across the North African nation a week ago. In the capital, Tripoli, and cities of Benghazi, Bayda and Tobruk, people took to the streets to demonstrate against Muammar Gaddafi's 42-year reign.
